posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Toshinori Sogabe launched a new manga titled Shitai no Karen-san!! (Karen the Corpse) on the Piccoma website and app service on Monday. The manga launched on the service with 10 chapters, and will add a new chapter every Monday. The first two chapters are free.
The romantic comedy manga centers on Kōta Nakamichi, who ever since he was a kid he has been possessed by female spirits. Kōta is searching for a job and he has a final interview, but the scantily-clad spirits surrounding him make the interview a total failure. However, his interviewer, the company president Karen Suguri, has a secret of her own.
Sogabe's Amaenaideyo!! manga inspired the 13-episode Ah My Buddha television anime series in 2005, and a second 13-episode season premiered in 2006. Media Blasters released the series over six DVD volumes from 2009-2010, and released a complete collection in 2012. Right Stuf acquired the anime in 2014, and released it on home video later that same year. Crunchyroll is streaming the series with English subtitles and an English dub.
