Big Order/Future Diary's Sakae Esuno Launches New Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The manga's story is an homage to Edogawa Rampo's The Boy Detectives Club novel series. The mystery centers around Mayumi Hanazaki, a middle-school girl who used to live with her aunt and uncle until a mysterious person mercilessly killed both. Now, thanks to an unusual incident, Mayumi relies upon the spirit of the legendary detective Kogoro Akechi to solve case.
Esuno previously drew the Future Diary and Big Order manga. Future Diary ran from 2006 to 2010, and inspired a video anime project, a 2011 television anime series, and a live-action television adaptation. Tokyopop published 10 of the 12 manga volumes. Funimation and the video-streaming service Niconico streamed the television anime series as it aired in Japan.
Esuno launched the Big Order supernatural manga series in Monthly Shōnen Ace in 2011, and ended it last July. Kadokawa published the manga's 10th and final compiled book volume last September, and Yen Press released the manga's first volume on January 31. The manga inspired an original video anime (OVA), and a 10-episode television anime series that premiered last April. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and will release the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
