Kingdom Hearts Manga's Amano Launches Series About RPG Party of Women Around 30
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The March issue of Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine revealed on Monday that manga creator Shiro Amano will launch a new series titled Arasā Quest in the magazine's next issue on February 28. The story will take place in an RPG world and focus on women adventurers who are around 30 years old (the Japanese word "arasā" is an abbreviation for "around thirty"). The manga will have some color pages.
Amano has created manga adaptations for Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days games. He also illustrated several novel adaptations for the franchise. North American publisher Tokyopop released all four volumes of Kingdom Hearts, both volumes of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and two volumes of Kingdom Hearts II before the company shut down its North American publishing division in 2011.
Yen Press then licensed all four manga adaptations in 2013. The company has also released the Shiro Amano: The Artwork of Kingdom Hearts artbook and Tomoco Kanemaki and Amano's Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories light novel series. Yen Press recently licensed Kanemaki and Amano's Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep novels.
