Mars, ES creator's biographical work about Cesare Borgia launched in 2005

This year's 16th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine revealed on March 20 that manga creator Fuyumi Soryo is putting her CESARE - Il Creatore che ha distrutto historical manga back on hiatus, but the manga will return this fall.

The manga had been on hiatus since October 2014, but Soryo resumed the manga in Morning in November, and was publishing the manga in the magazine once a month, with a plan to publish five chapters. The manga entered the papal conclave storyline with the new chapters.

Soryo launched the manga in Morning in 2005, and Kodansha published the 11th and most recent volume in January 2015. The manga's 12th volume will ship in June. The biographical work tells the story of Cesare Borgia. Motoaki Hara supervises the manga.

Soryo published her Mars manga in Bessatsu Friend from 1996-2000, and Tokyopop published all 15 volumes of the manga and the Mars Gaiden prequel in 2002-2004. The manga inspired a Taiwanese drama series in 2004-2005. A 10-episode Japanese live-action drama adaptation premiered in January 2016 and a film concluding the story premiered in June 2016. Soryo also drew the manga ES (Eternal Sabbath), which Del Rey published in English.
