The April issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine revealed on Saturday that Gengoroh Tagame will launch his new series Bokura no Shikisai (Our Color) manga in the magazine's May issue, which will ship on March 24.
The magazine describes the manga:
"I love men. There's nothing strange about that, or it shouldn't be..." Running away from a "normal everyday," the place he arrives at is... a beachside café where Art x Youth can be painted.
The April issue also a published a special chapter for Tagame's My Brother’s Husband (Otōto no Otto) manga on Saturday. The chapter commemorates the upcoming live-action mini-series adaptation, and it takes place after the manga's ending.
Tagame launched My Brother’s Husband in Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine in November 2014 and ended it last May. Futabasha published the manga's fourth compiled volume last July. Pantheon Books shipped the first two-in-one English omnibus volume last May. The manga was nominated for Best Comic at last year's 44th annual Angoulême International Comics Festival. The manga also won an Excellence Award at the 19th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2015. Amazon named the book as one of 20 books in the "Comics & Graphic Novels" category of its Best Books of 2017 list.
The live-action adaptation mini-series will have three episodes, and will premiere on BS Premium on March 4 at 10:00 p.m.
