This year's 46th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is revealing on Wednesday that writer Kyoichi Nanatsuki and artist Teppei Sugiyama will launch a new manga temporarily titled Tantei Nemo to Nanatsu no Satsujin Misshitsu (Detective Nemo and the Seven Secret Murder Rooms) this winter in the magazine.
Nanatsuki (Project ARMS) and illustrator Kyung-Il Yang (Blade of the Phantom Master, Defense Devil) launched their Area D - Inōryōiki manga (pictured at right) in 2012, and ended the series in January 2016. Shogakukan published the 14th and final volume in February 2016.
The manga inspired a 26-episode television anime series in 2001, and a 26-episode sequel series titled Project ARMS: The 2nd Chapter aired in 2001-2002. Viz Media released the first season on DVD in 2002-2004, and released the second season on DVD in 2004-2005. Discotek Media relicensed both anime seasons earlier this year, and plans to release them on DVD with Japanese audio and English subtitles and an English dub.
