posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
New driving manga launched on Monday, takes place in 2020s with top-class driver who returns to Japan

Shuuichi Shigeno's MF Ghost manga launched in the 40th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine on Monday. The first chapter includes an opening color page and has 40 pages.

The series takes place in the 2020s, when self-driving cars are ubiquitous in Japan. The manga centers on Kanata Livington, a Japanese driver who goes back to Japan after graduating at the top of his class at a racing school in England. The series also focuses on the MFG, a racing circuit on public roads that has garnered attention worldwide.

Shigeno recently ended his Sailor Ace manga on April 3. He launched the manga in June 2015 and Kodansha published the sixth and final volume on June 6.

Shigeno ended his Initial D manga in Young Magazine in July 2013, and Tokyopop published the beginning of that manga in North America. The manga inspired several television anime series, a live-action film, several original video anime projects, and a successful game line. The manga recently inspired a trilogy of anime films, the third of which opened in February 2016.
