Viz Adds Twin Star Exorcists Manga by Good Luck Girl/Binbō-gami ga's Sukeno
posted on by Egan Loo
North American publisher Viz Media will release Twin Star Exorcists (Sōsei no Onmyōji), the latest manga from Good Luck Girl! (Binbō-gami ga!) creator Yoshiaki Sukeno. The website ICv2 describes the story of "two exorcists of equal strength who are fated to marry and produce a child, the ultimate spiritual warrior."
Sukeno launched the "new-generation onmyō (ancient Japanese occultism) fantasy" in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine last November, and Shueisha published the third compiled book volume in October. Viz will begin publishing the manga next summer with the second volume coming later in 2015.
Sukeno also ran his Binbō-gami ga! manga in Jump Square from 2008 until last year. That manga inspired a 13-episode anime series in 2012, and Funimation streamed and released the anime on home video in North America.
Update: Viz Media clarified that it will publish the manga quarterly. Since the first volume will ship next July, there will be two volumes in the 2015 calendar year.
