Dorohedoro's Q Hayashida Launches New Manga in March

New sci-fi manga features protagonist who fights against aliens

This year's December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine revealed on Monday that Q Hayashida's new manga Dai Dark will launch the magazine's April 2019 issue, which will ship in March. The science-fiction space manga will center on a protagonist who continually fights against all the aliens who are trying to take his or her life. The new manga is part of an overall project to celebrate Monthly Shonen Sunday's 10th anniversary in the magazine's June 2019 issue.

Hayashida launched the science-fiction manga Dorohedoro in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine in 1999. When Monthly Ikki ended serialization in 2014, the manga moved to its replacement magazine Hibana, and then to Monthly Shonen Sunday when Hibana ceased publication in 2017. The manga ended in Monthly Shonen Sunday's October issue on September 12. The manga's 23rd and final compiled book volume shipped on Monday. The manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation.

Viz Media began distributing the manga digitally when it launched SigIKKI, its online English version of Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki seinen manga magazine, in 2009. The North American manga distributor then began releasing the title in printed book form in 2010, and the 22nd volume shipped on May 15.
