The official website for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Norihiro Yagi (Claymore, Angel Densetsu) will release the "Gekkō no Arcadia" (Moonlight Arcadia) one-shot manga in the next issue on Monday. The manga will be 49 pages long and have color pages.

The "bravery and adventure science-fiction fantasy" story will begin when a boy and girl meet. A tagline in the upcoming issue reads, "There are two moons that watch over. A boy now sets out—!!"

Yagi debuted his Claymore manga in 2001 and ended the series in 2014. Viz Media released the 27-volume series in North America. The manga inspired a television anime adaptation in 2007, and Funimation released the anime on home video.

Yagi's Angel Densetsu manga ran from 1993 to 2000, and Jump Comics published 15 compiled book volumes. The series inspired an original video anime in 1996.
