Rensuke Oshikiri Launches Gyanprin Manga About Gambling Girls

Oshikiri recently resumed Hi Score Girl manga after 2-year hiatus due to controversy

This year's 16th issue of Futabasha's Manga Action magazine published the first chapter of Gyanprin, a new manga series by Rensuke Oshikiri (Hi Score Girl, Pupipō!), on Tuesday.

The manga portrays the everyday lives of four young women who love gambling and a self-indulgent lifestyle. The manga's first chapter depicts the main characters waiting for a pachinko parlor to open after playing mahjong all night.

Oshikiri recently resumed his Hi Score Girl manga in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine on July 25. The manga launched in the magazine in 2010, but had been on hiatus since 2014 due to a legal controversy involving multiple game developers claiming copyright infringement. The manga had an anime adaptation announced before the controversy broke. Square Enix and SNK settled their claims in August 2015, allowing Square Enix to publish the series again.

Oshikiri's Pupipō! horror comedy manga ran in the free web comic magazine Flex Comix Blood from 2007 to 2009. The series inspired an anime adaptation that premiered in 2013.
