posted on by Alex Mateo
Manga creator Shizumu Watanabe revealed on their Twitter account on Wednesday that they will launch their planned new manga Majō no Sasageru Trick (Tricks Dedicated to Witches) in this year's 39th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine on August 26. The first chapter will have 68 pages, including opening color pages. Watanabe teased that the story is about a reincarnated magician and a witch.
Watanabe revealed in early May that they are recruiting assistants for a new manga serialization. They also announced in June that their manga would begin serialization by the end of summer.
Watanabe and Okushō ended their Real Account manga last November. Watanabe (Kono Kanojo wa Fiction desu) drew the art for the manga, and Okushō wrote the story. They launched the manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in the February 2014 issue. The manga switched to Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2015, but switched back in June 2018. Kodansha shipped the manga's 24th and final volume last December. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English, and it released the manga's omnibus volume containing volumes 12-14 digitally on June 30.
The manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation.
