Comedy manga about poor college student who moves to town with bizarre people launches September 29

This year's 43rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Morning magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Keiichi Arawi is launching a new manga series titled CITY in the magazine's next issue on September 29. The manga will have a color opening page, and art from the manga will appear on the magazine's cover.

The new slapstick comedy manga will center on Nagumo, a penniless college student who moves to a town filled with bizarre people. The magazine also teases about a "reckless girl who sets the city in motion."

Arawi previously drew the Nichijou manga (seen right), which revolves around a group of female students living what would be a normal high school life, except that it also includes a talking cat, a robot, deer-wrestling, and other strange anomalies. Arawi launched the series as a short manga in Monthly Shonen Ace in 2006 before launching the main manga later that year. The manga also ran in Kadokawa's Comptiq and 4-Koma Nano Ace magazines.

Arawi ended the manga last December. Kadokawa shipped 10 compiled book volumes for the series. Vertical Comics is releasing the manga in English, and released the fourth volume on September 6.

The manga inspired a TV anime in 2011, which Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan.
