The first chapter will have 74 pages including an opening color page.
Itō revealed in August that they are recruiting assistants for a new manga. Itō described the manga's story as centering on the growth of an artist in Italy during the Middle Ages. The assistants will be expected to do background buildings, props, and crowd characters, with a particular emphasis on Italian brickwork buildings.
