posted on by Jabulani Blyden
The June issue of Kodakawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine revealed last Saturday that Brave10's Kairi Shimotsuki will launch a new manga series tentatively titled Brave10 Tawamure in the magazine's July issue when it ships on June 15. The first chapter will include a center color image.
Brave10 Tawamure is a spin-off of Shimotsuki's Brave10 and Brave10 S manga, and it will focus on Kirigakure Saizō, Sarutobi Sasuke, and Hanzō Hattori. The issue teased that the manga will reveal information about their past.
Shimotsuki's Brave10 S series ended in March, and Kadokawa published the ninth compiled volume (pictured at right) on March 26. Shimotsuki launched Brave10 S, the continuation of her original Brave10 manga, in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011.
The manga's story reimagines the legendary adventures of the 10 brave warriors assembled by the warlord Sanada Yukimura in the year 1600, in the middle of Japan's tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era.
North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing licensed Shimotsuki's A Century of Temptation manga and published it in 2013. Tokyopop published Shimotsuki's Madness manga in 2009, and Udon Entertainment published her Devil Kings Basara manga in 2008.
