Mushibugyo's Hiroshi Fukuda Launches New Manga on April 25
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 19th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine revealed on Wednesday that manga creator Hiroshi Fukuda will launch a new manga titled ___go no Sekai (The World After ___) in the magazine's combined 22nd and 23rd issue on April 25. (The magazine deliberately obscured the beginning of the new manga's title.)
The magazine teases the manga with the text: "No one can predict destiny. An impactful youth story!" The magazine adds that the story is set in Tokyo's Ikebukuro area, and centers on a boy named Yamato, who worries about his relationship with his younger brother, and also his unspoken feelings for a female childhood friend. But one day, all three are confronted with a surprising incident.
Fukuda serialized the original Mushibugyō manga from 2009 to 2010, and Shogakukan compiled and published three book volumes. Fukuda launched his new Jōjū Senjin!! Mushibugyō manga, which revamps the basic story, in 2011, and ended it last September. Shogakukan published the manga's 32nd and final compiled book volume last October.
Jōjū Senjin!! Mushibugyō inspired a 26-episode television anime series that aired in 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The manga also inspired three original video anime episodes bundled with the manga's 15th, 16th, and 17th volumes.
