This year's 46th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is revealing on Wednesday that manga creator Norihiro Yagi is launching a new series in the magazine this winter. The work will mark the first time Yagi is publishing a manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday. The magazine will reveal the exact premiere date and title at a later date.
Yagi debuted his Claymore manga in 2001 and ended the series in 2014. Viz Media released the 27-volume series in North America. The manga inspired a television anime adaptation in 2007, and Funimation released the anime on home video.
Yagi's Angel Densetsu manga ran from 1993 to 2000, and Jump Comics published 15 compiled book volumes. The series inspired an original video anime in 1996.
Most recently, Yagi published a one-shot manga titled "Gekkō no Arcadia" (Moonlight Arcadia) in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March.
