Kodansha Comics Adds Interviews with Monster Girls, Fairy Tail: Twin Dragons of Sabertooth, Nekogahara Manga

posted on by Jabulani Blyden

Kodansha Comics announced on Friday that it has licensed Petos' Interviews with Monster Girls (Demi-chan wa Kataritai) manga. The company also announced that it has licensed Kazuhiro Fujita's (Ushio & Tora) Black Museum: The Ghost and the Lady (Kuro Hakubutsukan: Ghost and Lady) manga, Hiroyuki Takei's (Shaman King) Nekogahara: Stray Cat Samurai manga, Kyōta Shibano and Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail: Twin Dragons of Sabertooth ( Fairy Tail Gaiden: Kengami no Sōryū) spinoff manga, and the Neo Parasyte f anthology manga. The five titles are slated for this fall.

Kodansha Comics describes Interviews with Monster Girls (tentative title) as follows:

Monsters of legend walk among us, going by the name “demi-humans.” Ever since he's discovered the “demis,” one young man has become obsessed with them. So when he gets a job as a teacher at a high school for demi-girls, it's a dream come true! But these demis, who include a rambunctious vampire, a bashful headless girl, and a succubus, have all the problems normal teenagers have, on top of their supernatural conditions. How to handle a classroom full of them?!

Kodansha released the manga's third volume in Japan on March 18. The manga runs in Kodansha's Young Magazine the 3rd magazine.

Kodansha Comics describes Nekogahara: Stray Cat Samurai (title tentative) as follows:

In medieval Japan, a bell hanging on the collar is a sign that a cat has a master. Norachiyo's bell hangs from his katana sheath, but he is nonetheless a stray—a ronin. This one-eyed cat samurai travels across a dishonest world, cutting through pretense and deception with his blade.

Takei launched Nekogahara: Stray Cat Samurai in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge magazine last September. The series marked Takei's first time publishing a manga in a Kodansha magazine. Kodansha will publish the first compiled volume in Japan on April 15.

Kodansha Comics describes Black Museum: The Ghost and the Lady as follows:

Deep in Scotland Yard in London sits an evidence room, where artifacts of the greatest mysteries in London history are kept. In this "Black Museum" sits two bullets, fused together after a head-on collision. This was the key piece of evidence in a case that brought together a supernatural Man in Gray and the famous nurse and activist Florence Nightingale—the only person who can see him. Surrounded by war and suffering, the lady enters into a desperate pact with this ghostlike man …

Kodansha released both volumes of Black Museum: The Ghost and the Lady in Japan last July.

Kodansha Comics describes Fairy Tail: Twin Dragons of Sabertooth (title tentative):

An argument over one of their companions splits the Twin Dragons up! But when Sting tries to take on the golems of Obstone Village on his own, he's left crushed, with his magic stolen. Could this job actually be a sinister trap set for Sting? And will Rogue forgive him and arrive in time to save his life?

The manga ran from July to November on Kodansha's "Magazine Pocket" manga app, and Kodansha released the only compiled volume in January.

Kodansha Comics describes Neo Parasyte f:

Neo Parasyte f is a collection of short stories set in the world of Parasyte, by a delicious mix of superstar and up-and-coming shojo artists. Yes, you read that right—this is a Parasyte shojo horror anthology.

A parasite keeps a house of mysteries that is full of twisted exhibits. Another kills an entire family, only to get stuck infecting a teenage daughter obsessed with fairy tale romance manga. These and 13 more stories, from some of the greatest shojo manga artists alive today, make up a chilling, funny, and entertaining tribute to an all-time classic series!

Authors include star artists such as Kaori Yuki (Godchild, Angel Sanctuary), Ema Toyama (I Am Here!), and Asumiko Nakamura (Utsubora).

Kodansha released Neo Parasyte f in two compiled volumes in Japan last March and April. The English print will come in one single volume.
