Manga marks 1st time Asano, Shūzō Oshimi running series in same magazine

This year's fifth issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine revealed on Friday that Inio Asano is launching a new manga titled Reiraku (Downfall; pictured left in below image) in the magazine's seventh issue on March 10.

The magazine teases the manga:

This story will show the drifting soul of a lone manga artist whose heart has been used up.

His launch of the manga will mark the first time he and Shūzō Oshimi (Flowers of Evil, Inside Mari) will serialize a manga in the same magazine. Oshimi will launch his own new Chi no Wadachi manga series (pictured right in above image) in the magazine's sixth issue on February 24.

Viz Media has published Asano's previous series Solanin and What a Wonderful World!, and is publishing the Goodnight Punpun manga. Fantagraphics Books published Asano's horror manga Nijigahara Holograph in 2014, and Vertical Comics published Asano's A Girl on the Shore manga last January.

He recently resumed his Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction manga on January 7, after entering a hiatus since last July. Asano has put the manga on hiatus several times since July 2014.
