Shogakukan serializes 3 manga simultaneously for single franchise on different platforms for 1st time

Shogakukan announced on Sunday that it will run three new manga simultaneously for the Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin franchise on three different platforms: the Coro Coro Comics magazine, the Sunday Webry website, and the Manga ONE app. This will be the first franchise for which Shogakukan will serialize three manga simultaneously on different platforms.

Each manga will focus on different characters. The Coro Coro Comics manga focuses on Asuto Inamon (left in image above), and Atsushi Ohba (Yo-Kai Watch Busters) is drawing the manga. The manga launched in the magazine's February issue on January 15.

The Sunday Webry manga will focus on Ryōhei Haizaki (center), and the Manga ONE manga will focus on Yūma Nosaka (right). Shogakukan has not yet announced a launch date for either manga.

The Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin television anime series is slated for spring 2018. Level 5 will launch the Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin game for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android in summer 2018.

In the story, protagonist Asuto Inamori's soccer club is disbanded after the school's soccer field is destroyed. He and friends go to Tokyo to attend Raimon-chuu (Raimon Junior High) to play soccer. The story is set after the first Inazuma Eleven anime and game. However, the show will take place in a parallel world from all other Inazuma Eleven soccer role-playing games (apart from the first), because the story has taken a different course.
