Shrine of the Morning Mist's Hiroki Ugawa Launches New Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine revealed on September 30 that Hiroki Ugawa is launching a new manga titled Post Kids in the magazine's next issue on October 29. The magazine teases that the manga will be set in a post-apocalyptic world wracked by plague and warring city states, and will focus on the activities of a wasteland courier service staffed by blue-skinned people with a natural immunity to disease. The story centers on a particular rookie courier named Fumito.
Ugawa ended his Nekogoze manga (seen right) in February 2017. Ugawa began the series in July 2014. He then launched the Kuro no Sōzō Shōkanshi: Tenseisha no Hangyaku manga with author Sora Ikui in 2017 and ended the series in three volumes. The third volume shipped in June 2020.
Ugawa's 2001 manga Asagiri no Miko (Priestesses of the Morning Mist or Shrine of the Morning Mist) was adapted into a 12-episode television anime in 2002 starring Rie Kanda, Sayaka Ohara, Mayumi Asano, and Megumi Hayashibara. Tokyopop once published the manga in North America. Media Blasters licensed the anime for North American home video release, and released it on Blu-ray Disc on January 5.
