Daisuke Moriyama (World Embryo, Chrono Crusade) launched the Mourning Bride manga in the June issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge magazine on Wednesday. The manga features on the cover of the issue, and the first chapter has color opening pages.
The story centers on the four brothers of the Corsarino mafia family: oldest son Alan, second son Bellini, third son Chris, and fourth son Dino. The brothers respond to a call from their grandfather, the Don of the family, to gather at the family home. When they arrive, the siblings learn of their grandfather's death. The will says that Marika, their grandfather's fiancé, will choose the successor to receive the inheritance.
The manga will serialize every other month, and the next chapter will debut in the magazine's August issue on July 17.
Moriyama and game director Tarō Yokō launched the Kimi Shi ni Tamafu Koto Nakare (You Must Not Give Yourself to Death) manga in 2014, and it inspired a stage play last December. Moriyama also drew the "Mahō Ineko to Garasu no Kutsushita" (The Magic Cat Doctor and the Glass Stockings) one-shot manga in 2015.
Moriyama launched his Chrono Crusade manga in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Magazine in 1999, before transferring it to Monthly Dragon Age in 2003, and ending it in 2004. Gonzo adapted the series into a television anime in 2003. ADV and later Funimation licensed and released the anime in North America. ADV Manga released all eight volumes of the Chrono Crusade manga in English from 2004 to 2006, but it currently remains unlicensed in North America after the closure of ADV Manga.
Moriyama launched his World Embryo manga in Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine in 2005, and concluded it in 2014. Dark Horse Comics licensed the manga in 2008, but has not yet released any of the manga in North America.
