posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Yū Azuki announced on Sunday that she will publish a sequel manga to her Igano Kabamaru manga titled Igano Kabamaru Sorikara. Shueisha will ship the book volume on February 25. The manga will be the first Igano Kabamaru story that Azuki has drawn since ending the manga 32 years ago. The sequel's story takes place after the manga's finale after Kabamaru and Hayate return to their ninja training in the mountains.
The original manga centered on an Iga ninja named Kagemaru, nicknamed Kabamaru for his appetite. He was raised by his grandfather alongside Hayate, and trained to be ninjas in the mountains. When their grandfather passes away Kabamaru moves to Tokyo with a girl his grandfather knew, and tries to adjust to an urban lifestyle after living all his life in the mountains, and is eventually involved in the rivalry between two private schools.
