Manga series by Takahiro Arai, Megumi Osuga

Indonesian publisher Elex Media Komputindo announced last week that it has licensed Takahiro Arai's The Soaring Quadrable (Tenshō no Quadrable) and Megumi Osuga's Matinee & Soiree (Matinee to Soiree) manga.

Elex Media describes The Soaring Quadrable:

In the age of the Warring States, four young men endure the training to become shinobi, earning special skills. Now they mus navigate through the vast oceans to save Europe from a darkness born from the devil! This historical adventure starring four young boys begins!

Arai launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in April 2017, and ended it in 2018. Shogakukan published the manga's fourth and final compiled book volume in March 2018.

Elex Media previously published all seven volumes of Arai's manga adaptation of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables novel.

Arai is currently drawing the Meitantei Conan: Zero no Tea Time (Detective Conan: Zero's Tea Time) manga spinoff of Gōshō Aoyama's Detective Conan manga. The manga runs in Weekly Shonen Sunday during times when Detective Conan is on hiatus. Elex Media publishes an Indonesian language version of Detective Conan in Indonesia, while Shogakukan Asia publishes an English language version of both Detective Conan and Detective Conan: Zero's Tea Time in various territories in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia.

Elex Media describes Matinee & Soiree:

"I'm going to prove myself on this stage!"

Rookie stage actor Makoto Mitsuya has spent the beginnings of his career trying to escape the shadow of his deceased older brother Miyuki, who was himself a famous actor, but who died tragically five years ago. When he lands a role that was supposedly made for his brother, he feels that his efforts have finally been rewarded. But an unexpected phenomenon occurs and upends his life, starting with the reappearance of his brother...

Osuga launched the manga in Shogakukan's Gessan magazine in November 2016, and it is ongoing. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on January 11.

Osuga drew the Waltz manga with writer Kōtarō Isaka from 2009 to 2012. Elex Media previously published all six volumes of the manga.
