Nichijou's Arawi Launches 'CITY' Comedy Manga This Month
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
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 Shōnen 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.
