posted on by Alex Mateo
Next year's February issue of Kodansha's Morning two magazine revealed on Thursday that Usamaru Furuya (No Longer Human, Genkaku Picasso) is launching a new manga titled Amane Gymnasium in the next issue shipping on January 21. The manga is about Amane Miyakata, a doll maker, and the miraculous story of her seven boy dolls.
Furuya originally announced the new manga at his "Fukai Nagaki no Naka de" (Inside Deep Grief) exhibition in Tokyo on December 6. The exhibition goes until January 5. Those who attend the exhibition will receive a postcard with an illustration for the new manga (pictured below).
Furuya recently debuted the Shōnen-tachi no Iru Tokoro (Where the Boys Are) manga in Shinchosha's Go Go Bunch magazine on October 8. His previous work, Joshikōsei ni Korosaretai (I Want to be Killed by a High School Girl), ended in Go Go Bunch in July. The second and final compiled book volume of the manga shipped in August. Furuya published the final chapter of his Teiichi no Kuni (Teiichi's Country) manga in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine in April, and Shueisha shipped the 14th and final volume of the manga on May 2.
Furuya's other manga works include 51 Ways to Save Her, Genkaku Picasso, and Lychee Light Club. DC Comics' CMX Manga announced 51 Ways to Save Her, but did not release it before shutting down in 2010. Viz Media licensed Genkaku Picasso in 2010, and Vertical also licensed Lychee Light Club in 2010.
