posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Takatoshi Nakamura launched the new Aoi no Eins (Aoi's One) manga in Kodansha's Comic Days app and website on Sunday. The series launched with two chapters.
The manga centers on Aoi Kamiya, a 20-year-old goalkeeper in a professional soccer club. In his three-year career, he has seen his club go from low-ranking to third-highest. Kamiya is selected as a representative of Japan. He feels the pressure as he enters an important game in the second half. Dedicated to his role, Kamiya protects Japan's goalmouth to the end.
Nakamura drew the manga adaptation of late author Tomohiro Matsu and artist Kantoku's Märchen Mädchen light novel series, alongside writer Kiyotsugu Yamagata. The manga launched in Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine in October 2017 and ended last May. Shueisha published the manga's second and final compiled book volume in June.
Nakamura's other manga include the soccer series Jūichi-bun no Ichi and the fantasy series Densetsu no Yūsha no Konkatsu.
