Masatoshi Kawahara will launch Mutsu Enmei-ryū Gaiden: Shura no Toki - Tōgoku Musō-hen (Greatest in Togoku Arc), a new arc in his Mutsu Enmei-ryū Gaiden: Shura no Toki manga, in the June issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine on May 2. The manga will center on Komahiko facing the historic Warring States warlord Honda Tadakatsu.

Kawahara launched the original manga run in 1989, and has serialized various arcs in Monthly Shonen Magazine irregularly over the past 30 years. The manga tells the story of the unbeaten legacy of a powerful martial art known as the Mutsu Enmei-ryu, and its practitioners throughout history. The latest arc, Mutsu Enmei-ryū Gaiden: Shura no Toki - Showa-hen (Showa Arc), launched in 2015 as the first arc in 10 years, and it ran for five chapters until 2016.

The manga inspired the Shura no Toki: Age of Chaos television anime in 2004. Media Blasters released the anime on DVD from 2004 to 2005.

The manga is a spinoff of Kawahara's earlier Shura no Mon martial arts manga, which also spawned the subsequent Shura no Mon: Dai Ni Mon and Shura no Mon Iden: Fudekage manga.
