The June issue of Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine revealed on Saturday that The Severing Crime Edge creator Tatsuhiko Hikagi will launch the tentatively titled Bakemono no Ō (Monster King) manga (pictured at right) in the next issue on June 7. The first chapter will have two color pages and 54 black-and-white pages.
The announcement includes the catchphrase "[Put] fear in all humans!" In the story, Shiori is job hunting when she receives a sudden part-time job offer from a man in front of the station. She gets in a taxi but suddenly starts to feel very sleepy. When she wakes up, she is in an eerie locked room. Can she escape unharmed?
