Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei's Kumeta Draws New Manga
posted on by Emma Hanashiro
Hakusensha's Le Paradis (Rakuen) manga anthology magazine announced on Friday that Kôji Kumeta (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, Joshiraku, The Eccentric Family character design) will draw a new manga in the magazine's next issue on February 28. The magazine describes the story as about a "Naked Prince" who is skillful at stripping down facades and true intentions all at once.
The preview does not specify if the new title will be a series or a one-shot.
Kumeta's Sekkachi Hakushaku to Jikan Dorobō manga is currently running in Weekly Shōnen Magazine and is slated to end in seven parts. The manga began in the magazine last year. Kodansha published the series' fourth compiled volume in Japan on September 17.
Kumeta ended his other series Joshiraku last year. He ended his Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei manga in the same magazine in May 2012, then drew a one-shot manga in the Shitauke Tantei Nokori Kazuhiro Series that same year.
