posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The August issue of of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine revealed the title and story introduction for manga creator Hiroki Endo's planned new manga on Friday. The manga is titled Planet of the Fools (Gusha no Hoshi), and it will center on a boy named Shinta. The setting is a planet named Slars, where the indigenous Slarsians and alien Earthians coexist uneasily. Shinta descends from both races, and is thus shunned by either side, but becomes involved in a conflict around "Regalia" that hold a mysterious power.
The manga will launch in the magazine's September issue on August 6. The magazine previously teased that the story will be set on a "different planet" and will involve "hand-to-hand combat" centering on revenge.
Endo ended his Soft Metal Vampire manga last December.
Kodansha Comics is publishing Endo's All-Rounder Meguru manga digitally in English. The manga ran in Kodansha's Evening magazine from 2008 to 2016. Kodansha published the series in 19 compiled volumes.
