posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator and writer Yoshiki Tonogai announced on Saturday that he has published the first chapter of a new web novel titled Kiseichū (Parasite) on DMM's Teller novel app. Tonogai noted that the story is not intended as a manga.
The Teller "chat novel" app presents horror and romance novels in a new format based on online chat apps and programs.
Tonogai's Doubt manga ran in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine from 2007-2009 and Yen Press released the series in English. After finishing Doubt, Tonogai launched another psychological horror manga, Judge, in the same magazine from 2010-2012. Yen Press also released that series in English. A live-action version of Judge opened in Japan in 2013. Tonogai then launched the Secret manga in Monthly Shonen Gangan in 2013, and ended it in 2015. Yen Press also released the series digitally and in print.
Tonogai launched the Ikitemasu ka? Honda-kun manga (seen right) in Monthly Shonen Gangan in July 2016, and ended it in February 2018. Square Enix published the manga's third and final volume last May.
