Hiroya Oku's Inuyashiki Manga Planned for 10 Volumes
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Hiroya Oku (Gantz, HEN) recently posted on his Twitter account that his Inuyashiki manga will run for 10 volumes. He also stated that he was drawing the manga at great cost, and estimates that each volume would have to sell 190,000 copies for him to turn a profit, but that he would continue to draw it.
Kodansha Comics USA licensed the manga last October, and will publish the first volume in North America on August 25. Kodansha Comics USA describes the sci-fi story:
Inuyashiki has a family that doesn't care about him. When he finds he has three months left to live, he realizes that the only one that will miss him is his dog. But his death comes sooner than expected when aliens crash into him. They rebuild him, but when they're done he's no longer human. What will this mean for Inuyashiki?
Hiroya Oku first launched Inuyashiki on Kodansha's Evening magazine in January 2014. Kodansha published the third compiled book volume of the manga series on February 23.
