posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's November issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine announced on Thursday that Yūshi Kawata and Yukito, the writer/artist duo for Neon Genesis Evangelion: Legend of the Piko-Piko Middle School Students, will launch a new manga titled Super no Oniisan (Older Brother of the Supermarket) in the next issue on November 2.
The comedy manga follows third-year high school student Michiru Tanaka, who barely passed the entrance exam to a college in Tokyo. As the date of his entrance to college approaches, however, he finds himself wrapped up in an unexpected incident, and ends up in charge of rebuilding his home town's supermarket. He and the other "big brothers" of the supermarket must fight against the effects of the recession, deflation, and depopulation.
Kawata and Yukito ended Neon Genesis Evangelion: Legend of the Piko-Piko Middle School Students (pictured right) on August 4, and the fifth and final volume shipped on Thursday. Dark Horse Comics is releasing the manga in English.
