posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine posted a promotional video on Thursday for Naoki Urasawa's new Mujirushi - Le signe des rêves (The Sign of Dreams) manga. The video reveals that the manga will be a collaboration project with Paris' Louvre Museum.
The manga will launch in the magazine's 21st issue on Friday. The wording on the manga's color opening page reveals that the manga will be a mini-series.
Shogakukan also revealed that the manga will not have a digital edition.
Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine announced last year that it would debut a new manga by Urasawa in 2017.
Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki ended their Billy Bat manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine in August 2016. The duo launched the manga in Morning magazine in October 2008. Kodansha published the 20th and final compiled book volume of the series in September 2016.
Viz Media has published Urasawa's 20th Century Boys, 21st Century Boys, Monster, and Pluto manga. Monster inspired a television anime series in 2004-2005, and 20th Century Boys inspired a live-action trilogy film adaptation in 2008-2009. Additionally, his Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl manga inspired an anime series in 1989-1992, an anime film in 1992, and an anime special in 1996. An anime project based on Pluto is in the works.
Viz Media is currently releasing Urasawa, Hokusei Katushika, and Takashi Nagasaki's Master Keaton manga. The series inspired a television anime adaptation in 1998, and an original video anime (OVA) continuation in 2004.
