Hideo Yamamoto put manga on hiatus in May to perform research

This year's 35th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Monday that Hideo Yamamoto will resume his Hikari-Man manga in the magazine's 40th issue on September 2.

Yamamoto put the manga on hiatus in May to perform research for the manga.

The manga previously resumed in May 2018 after a two-year hiatus since April 2016.

The story follows Hikari Shirochi, an ordinary high school boy whose hobbies are games and PC-modding. In the first chapter, mysterious phenomena occur to his body, which conducts static electricity unusually well.

Yamamoto launched the manga in Weekly Big Comic Spirits in 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on April 12.

Yamamoto created Homunculus, Ichi the Killer, Okama Hakusho, and the Voyeur manga. Viz Media published Voyeur and Voyeurs, Inc. manga in North America, while Ichi the Killer inspired several live-action adaptations and an original video anime. Director Takashi Miike oversaw the Ichi the Killer film that Media Blasters released in America, and he also made a voice cameo in the Ichi The Killer: Episode 0 anime that Central Park Media's U.S. Manga Corps distributed. Yamamoto and Crying Freeman author Ryoichi Ikegami collaborated on the Adam to Eve (Adam and Eve) manga, which launched in Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine in 2015, and ended in 2016. Shogakukan published two volumes for the manga.
