New manga from mega-popular creator Yukiru Sugisaki to be published for the FIRST TIME EVER in the pages of Newtype USA!

HOUSTON, September 24, 2004—Lagoon Engine Einsatz, a new serialized manga from best-selling creator Yukiru Sugisaki (D•N•Angel, Candidate for Goddess), will appear for the first time ever in the October issue of Newtype USA!

A special collaboration between the renowned artist and the top-selling anime magazine in the English-speaking world, Lagoon Engine Einsatz marks a first for any manga—it will be published in English before being released in Japan. The new manga project will also include several full-color pages in each installment, adding some unique visual flair to the traditionally black-and-white manga pages.

An episodic adventure set in alternate worlds, Lagoon Engine Einsatz is a mystical, mysterious, action-packed tale that will unite various characters from vastly different backgrounds. Like any good story, Lagoon Engine Einsatz should appeal to all types of manga fans—as well as those new to the genre.

“I'm thrilled that Newtype USA has the opportunity to work with such a fantastic talent like Sugisaki-san to produce an incredible new manga with a uniquely global allure,” says Newtype USA editor in chief Gary Steinman. “This project is further proof of the worldwide appeal of Japanese pop culture.”

Lagoon Engine Einsatz is scheduled to run within the pages of Newtype USA throughout the next year.

Availability

Newtype USA Vol. 3, Issue 10 will be available Oct. 1, 2004.
