This year's 22nd issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine revealed on Tuesday that Takashi Noguchi will launch a new manga titled Shinsengumi Rebellion in the magazine's next issue on November 14. The manga will have a color opening page and the first chapter will have 47 pages.
The manga will focus on Hiroyuki, a delinquent famous in his local area, who is challenged to a fight by a mixed martial artist.
Noguchi adapted Baku Yumemakura's Kurozuka supernatural romance novel into a manga, which in turn inspired an anime in 2008. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Crackle released the anime in North America. Noguchi also created a spinoff of the late Mitsuteru Yokoyama's classic manga Babel II called Babel II: The Returner in 2010. The series ended in Young Champion on January 10, and Akita Shoten published the manga's 17th and final compiled volume (pictured at right) on February 20.
