Rozen Maiden's Peach-Pit Launches New Short Manga Series
posted on by Anita Tai
This year's 28th issue of Kodansha's weekly Morning magazine announced on Thursday that the manga artist duo Peach-Pit (Rozen Maiden, Shugo Chara!, Zombie-Loan, DearS) will launch a new series. The series is titled Nishina Tesura wa Suirishinai (Tesura Nishina Isn't Reasoning). The series will launch in the 29th issue of the magazine, which goes on sale on June 15.
An image accompanying the announcement features a girl standing on a guardrail and a phrase that reads "A high school girl stands on the guardrail. What is she going to...!?" The series will be a short serialization.
Peach-Pit launched their ongoing Rozen Maiden 0 manga series in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine on February 19. The official Twitter account for the manga announced last month that it is on hiatus from May until August. The original Rozen Maiden manga series ran from 2002 to 2007 in Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine and continued in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2008 to 2014.
Tokyopop published Peach-Pit's DearS and Rozen Maiden manga in North America. Del Rey and Kodansha published Shugo Chara! as well as Shugo Chara-chan! and Shugo Chara! Encore!, while Yen Press published their Zombie-Loan manga. All of these franchises inspired television anime.
