posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The December issue of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine announced on Saturday that manga creator Keitarō Takahashi (Jormungand) will launch a new series titled Hinmin, Seihitsu, Daifugō (Poor Person, Ark of the Covenant, Extremely Rich Person) in the magazine's January issue, which will ship on December 19.
The new fantasy manga will focus on "a world of 'underneath' 'surface' and 'money'." The December issue also described the manga with the lines, "She uses a box. Her name is Aurelia de Medici."
Takahashi ended his Destro 246 manga in the May issue of Sunday GX on April 19, and Shogakukan published the manga's seventh and final compiled volume on June 17. The May issue of Sunday GX had announced that Takahashi would start a new series before the end of the year.
Takahashi launched the Jormungand manga about a female arms dealer and her accomplices in Sunday GX in 2006, and he ended the series in January 2012. Shogakukan published 11 compiled volumes for the series. Viz Media published the entire series in North America in 2009-2013.
The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series and the 12-episode Jormungand Perfect Order sequel series in 2012. Funimation released both series on home video in 2014 and again earlier this year.
