Bokurano's Mohiro Kitoh Launches New Manga Series in November
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The November issue of Kodansha's good! Afternoon magazine revealed on Monday that manga creators Mohiro Kitoh and Tōma will launch the new Nōryoku Shujinkō Hosei manga in the next issue on November 7. Kitoh is providing the story, and Tōma is providing the art.
The Evening magazine provided an update in March on Kitoh's health since he underwent surgery for his spinal canal stenosis in August 2017. The note stated that while Kitoh was not yet fully recovered enough to draw on a regular serialization schedule, Kitoh asked that people wait a little bit until he is able to resume his Hayabusa-chan mo Tondemasu (Hayabusa-chan is Flying Too) manga. He had put the manga on hiatus in September 2017 to focus on recovering from his surgery.
Kitoh's Bokurano manga originally ran in Shogakukan's Ikki magazine from 2004 to 2009. Viz Media published all 11 volumes under its Signature Ikki line as Bokurano: Ours. The Bokurano manga inspired GONZO's 2007 television anime series by the same name.
Dark Horse Comics also published part of Kitoh's Shadow Star (Narutaru) manga in English. The manga inspired a television anime adaptation titled Shadow Star Narutaru in 2003.
