Samurai Kimura Shigenari meets King Arthur in new series

This year's June issue of Tokuma Shoten's Comic Zenon magazine announced on Tuesday that Kairi Shimotsuki will launch a new manga titled Arthur Bright in the next issue on May 25.

The manga's story follows Kimura Shigenari, a real-life samurai who served Toyotomi Hideyori. Kimura fights in the Siege of Osaka in 1615, but is hit with a mysterious light. He wakes up in a land ruled by England's legendary King Arthur.

Shimotsuki launched Brave10 S, the continuation of her original Brave10 manga, in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011, and ended the series in March 2016. She also serialized the one-volume Brave10 Tawamure spinoff series (pictured at right) from June 2016 to January 2017.

The original Brave10 manga inspired a television anime in 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. NIS America released a Blu-ray Disc box of Brave10 in 2013.

Shimotsuki is also serializing the Ayakashi Parade Game manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine. Kadokawa published the first compiled volume on March 27.

North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing licensed Shimotsuki's A Century of Temptation manga and published it in 2013. Tokyopop published Shimotsuki's Madness manga in 2009, and Udon Entertainment published her Devil Kings Basara manga in 2008.
