posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 35th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine revealed on Thursday that the first part of manga artist duo Peach-Pit's new Nishina Tesura wa Suirishinai (Tesura Nishina Isn't Reasoning) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on August 3. The magazine published the manga's seventh chapter on Thursday.
The story begins with an image of a girl standing atop a bridge guardrail, but flashes back a few days before that, when a girl on a train accuses a salaryman named Shunta Momochi of molesting her. Another girl named Tesura Nishina raises her hand and comes to his defense, solving the incident before the girl and Shunta get off the train. Together, the "unreasoning" Tesura Nishina and Shunta "Momotarō" Momoichi, who just wants to be friends with a high school girl, will explore what Tesura calls "meaningless theories," her term for the mysteries of everyday life.
Peach-Pit (Rozen Maiden, Shugo Chara!, Zombie-Loan, DearS) launched the manga in Morning on June 15. 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, but the manga is on hiatus from May to 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 magazine from 2008 to 2014.
Peach-Pit ended their Wandering Wonder World manga series on January 26. Kadokawa published the fourth and final compiled volume in March.
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.
