Menhera Samurai centers on shy, shut-in samurai in Edo period

This year's 21st issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine revealed on Friday that Satoru Akahori will launch a new manga titled Menhera Samurai (Mental Health Samurai) that will launch in the magazine's next issue on November 12. Kyūjo Matsumoto will draw the manga.

The manga centers on an extremely shy and shut-in samurai in Japan's peaceful Edo period. He is preoccupied every day by thoughts of harm, and his hobby of seeing the poster girls of every tea house.

Akahori is most famous for being the main writer on the Saber Marionette franchise, as well as penning multiple anime and novels for the Sakura Wars franchise. He has also written the stories for such manga as Sorcerer Hunters, Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~, and Abenobashi: Magical Shopping Arcade.

Matsumoto ended the Majo wa Mioji kara (The life of the witch who remains single for about 300 years) manga with Shigemitsu Harada (Cells at Work! Code Black) in May 2020.
