Manga about boy with fear of stories, girl who writes social games debuts online

Writer Makoto Sanda and artist Chū Kawasaki (Contrast 88) launched a new manga titled Yosuga Scenario Parade on Kodansha's Magazine Pocket manga app on Friday.

The story follows Yūji Sakurabashi, a boy with a phobia of fictional stories. Through a strange series of circumstances, he ends up with a job at a café that is also an office for social game scenario writers. There he meets Yosuga Myōjin, a writer of the popular game Gate of Guardian. The tagline in the visual above reads, "Genius girl teaches the way to write a social game."

Sanda's Rental Magica light novel series inspired a five-volume manga by Akiho Narimiya that debuted in 2006. The novels also inspired a 24-episode television anime series that aired in 2007-2008. Right Stuf released the anime on DVD.

Arisaka also illustrated the Yume Nikki - I Am Not in Your Dream light novel, which J-Novel Club has published digitally. Sanda and illustrator Aco Arisaka also launched a new fantasy manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace on June 26.
