posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The October issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine announced on Tuesday that Masasumi Kakizaki is launching a new manga titled Yomotsu Hegui (Partaking of the Underworld's Food) in the magazine's next issue on October 19. The magazine teases the manga as centering on a man who has lost everything and meets a shinigami, and an "eternal battle for life."
Kakizaki most recently ended the manga adaptation of the Spy no Tsuma (The Spy's Wife, manga pictured at right) live-action television movie on March 18. The manga's second and final compiled book volume also shipped on the same day.
George Abe and Kakizaki's Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin prison manga inspired a television anime series in 2010. Funimation streamed the series on its website. A live-action film adaptation of Kakizaki's Kansen Rettō horror manga debuted in 2009.
