posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 21st issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine revealed on Wednesday that Julietta Suzuki will launch a new series titled Tripitaka Torinique in the magazine's next issue on October 20. The manga will launch with two chapters for a total of 66 pages. The manga will appear on the issue's front cover, and the first chapter will also have a color opening page.
The magazine teases the setting as "1,400 years ago," and centers on a girl named Kaka, who is about to begin a journey.
A "volume 25.5," an official fanbook, will ship on December 20, and will bundle a DVD with an original anime, and a 32-page epilogue manga.
The series inspired two anime seasons, and Funimation streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and also released both seasons on home video. The manga also inspired a series of four original anime DVDs (OADs) that shipped with the manga's 22nd-25th compiled volumes.
