Mariko Kikuchi Launches New Essay Manga About Children Born Into Religion

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Author of A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad's an Alcoholic manga launched new manga on September 22

Manga creator Mariko Kikuchi launched a new essay manga titled "Kami-sama" no Iru Ie de Sodachimashita: Shūkyō 2-Sei na Watashi-tachi (A Home Life With God ~We Children Born Into Religion~) on Shueisha's Yomitai website on September 22. The anthology essay manga will tell a different story about a different faith every chapter, and it will center on children who were born into a religion due to having parents practicing the faith, and who had no choice in their entry into the religion. Kikuchi will draw from her own experience of being born into a religion.

Kikuchi's A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad's an Alcoholic (Yō to Bakemono ni Naru Chichi ga Tsurai) manga ran in Akita Shoten's Champion Cross magazine in 2017. A new one-shot then ran in Akita Shoten's Elegance Eve magazine later that year. Akita Shoten published one volume for the manga. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga and will release it in November.

The manga inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in March 2020.
