Rei Toma's New Manga Takes Place in World of Dawn of the Arcana (Updated)
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The February issue of Shogakukan's Cheese! magazine revealed more information on Saturday about Rei Tōma's planned new manga. The new manga, titled Kogetsu no Yume (The Lonely Moon's Dream), will take place in the same world as Tōma's earlier Dawn of the Arcana manga.
The manga centers on a hidden love between those of different social classes. The Ajin — those who are half beast and half human — are stronger than humans but are also despised by them. In order to change that fate, Aitsuki serves the king, under the guise of a man.
The manga will launch in the magazine's March issue, which ships on January 24.
The January issue of Cheese! published a one-shot manga (pictured right) by Tōma on November 24.
Tōma's Dawn of the Arcana manga launched in Cheese! in 2009, and ended its run in 2013. Shogakukan published 13 compiled book volumes for the manga. Viz Media licensed the series and published the 13th and final volume in North America in 2014.
Tōma launched The Water Dragon's Bride (Suijin no Hanayome) manga in Cheese! in February 2015, and ended it on September 22. Shogakukan published the manga's 10th volume on September 26. Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and it released the seventh volume on October 2.
