Koisome Momiji artist begins series about a ghost girl

This year's ninth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump announced on Monday that it will debut two new manga series in upcoming issues. Tadahiro Miura will begin Yuragi-sō no Yūna-san (Yūna of Yuragi Manor, pictured in first image below) in the 10th issue on February 8, and Koyoharu Gotōge will begin Kimetsu no Yaiba (Blade of Demon Destruction, pictured in second image below) in the 11th issue on February 15.

The "onsen x ghost love comedy" Yuragi-sō no Yūna-san takes place at a house with a hot spring. A psychic and a beautiful yukata-wearing ghost girl are among the tenants.

Miura previously drew the art for the Weekly Shonen Jump series Koisome Momiji (first volume pictured at right), written by Tsugirō Sakamoto, which ran from May to November 2012. He has since drawn several one-shots for the magazine.

Gotōge was one of the recipients of the 70th Jump Treasure Newcomer Manga Awards in 2013. He has since drawn several one-shots for Weekly Shonen Jump.

Update: Added preview images of both new manga.
