Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer's Satoshi Mizukami Launches New Manga in June

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga centers on supernatural problem-solver siblings who save girl

The July issue of Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine revealed on Tuesday that Satoshi Mizukami will launch a new manga titled Nihonmatsu Kyōdai to Mokuzō Keikoku no Bōken (The Nihonmatsu Siblings and Wooden Valley Adventures) in the magazine on June 30. (Note: The romanization of the title isn't official. The title could also translate to The Adventures of the Nihonmatsu Siblings and Keikoku Kizukuri.) Mizukami posted the announcement page on Twitter on Tuesday.

In the "Japanese-style fantasy battle" story, mechanical sparrows chase after the girl Nerine on a moonlit night, but a boy and a girl save her. The boy is the older brother Akahiko, who is sullen, stingy, and polite to a fault. The girl is the energetic younger sister Yukio, who can manipulate snow. The pair are supernatural problem-solvers for hire, doing anything from intimidation to exorcisms as the Nihonmatsu siblings. (Note: Name romanizations are not official.)

Mizukami drew and wrote the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer manga, which launched in Young King Ours magazine in April 2005, and ended in 2010. JManga once carried the manga, and Seven Seas Entertainment later licensed and released the manga in print in North America.

Mizukami launched his Spirit Circle manga in Young King Ours in May 2012, and ended the series in March 2016. Shonengahosha shipped the sixth and final compiled volume in June 2016. Crunchyroll began simultaneous publication of the manga in 2014, and Seven Seas Entertainment licensed and will release the manga in print.
