This year's March issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine revealed on Friday that Atsushi Suzumi will launch a new manga tentatively titled Tengai Cloud (note: romanization not confirmed) in the magazine's next issue, which ships on February 26.

The Yūki Matsuda — a member of the city of Akitakata's commerce, industry, and tourism division — is credited with cooperation on the manga. The manga centers on a scary-faced high school student named Gō, who transfers to Hiroshima and tries to use the chance to change his image, but he fails and becomes a loner once again. But then, his classmate Isuzu forces him to join the "Kagura" club, which focuses on the kagura theatrical dance style of Shinto.

Suzumi ended the manga adaptation of Kouhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series in July, and the 15th and final volume (pictured at right) shipped on September 26.

Suzumi (Venus Versus Virus, Nightmare Go Round) launched the manga in Monthly Shōnen Ace in 2010. BookWalker has released 11 volumes of the manga digitally in English.

Seven Seas Entertainment released Suzumi's eight-volume Venus Versus Virus manga in English. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that aired in 2007. ADV Films and later Funimation Entertainment released the anime on DVD. Del Rey published Suzumi's one-volume Haridama Magical Cram School manga in English in 2008, as well as the two-volume Amefurashi: The Rain Goddess manga in 2009.
