Company to publish 1-volume omnibus by Solanin author by early 2016

North American publisher Vertical Comics announced at its panel at Genericon last weekend that it has licensed Inio Asano's A Girl on the Shore (Umibe no Onna no Ko) manga.

Asano published the two-volume manga in Ohta Books' Manga Erotics F magazine from 2009-2013. The manga covers the themes of love and sex between the boys and girls living in a countryside town.

Vertical will publish the series as a one-volume omnibus edition by early 2016.

Viz Media published Asano's Solanin manga in North America in 2008. Asano was nominated for both an Eisner award and a Harvey award in 2009 for the series. Solanin was also adapted into a live-action film in 2010.

Viz Media also published Asano's What a wonderful world! manga in 2009. Fantagraphics Books published Asano's horror manga Nijigahara Holograph last year.
