Kia Asamiya Launches Zero Angel Car Racing Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Kia Asamiya launched a new car racing manga titled Zero Angel ~Sōheki no Datenshi~ (Zero Angel ~The Clear Blue Fallen Angel~) in the April issue of Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine on Monday.
The manga is set in Yokohama, and centers on high school student and pro driver Aika Misaki. While she works as an idol in kart racing, she is also an undefeated street racer in her Subaru WRX STi.
Asamiya created the Silent Möbius, Steam Detectives, Compiler, and Junk: Record of the Last Hero manga, among others. He provided character designs for the Martian Successor Nadesico anime (which he later adapted into the Nadesico manga), adapted the Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace into manga, and wrote and drew the Batman: The Child of Dreams comic. Many of his manga have been adapted into anime. He ended his Silent Möbius QD manga last June.
Viz Media published his Silent Möbius and Steam Detectives manga in North America, while CPM Manga published Nadesico, and DrMaster published Junk: Record of the Last Hero. Udon Entertainment announced in 2009 that it planned to republish the original manga Silent Möbius as it was published in Japan, including the later Silent Möbius Tales and Möbius Klein volumes, but the company has since only published the first four volumes of the original manga.
