With the Lucca Comics & Games 2021 now in full swing, here the first big manga announcements are not long in coming, or the new acquisitions that we will see arrive in Italy in the course of 2022 now more and more at the gates. It starts with GOEN, which gives us the following announcements:
Precedence to the teacher of josei manga, of course: Mari OKAZAKI sensei!
Already highly appreciated author of cult such as & (And) and SUPPLEMENT, she will thrill us again with a collection, in a single volume, of stories of three great friends in today’s Japan, stories of love and passion that are interconnected and based on pursuit of happiness… which is not always conditioned by a ring on your finger: SINGLE FOREVER? (Zutto Dokushin de Iru Tsumori? – ず っ と 独身 で い る つ も り?).
TWO LIKE US 39 – SAGAWA THE HERO
Did you think you got rid of the most annoying and hilarious pair of thugs in manga? But not even for a dream! Ito and Mitsuashi are back on the road, ready to fight with anyone and make us laugh again without restraint.
But this time, on the occasion of a special volume wanted by the master NISHIMORI as a last (?) Tribute and greeting to one of the most loved titles by fans, there will be light in the spotlight – maybe … if Ito and Mitsuhashi agree … – for a new hero: TWO LIKE US 39 – SAGAWA THE HERO (Kyou kara ore wa !!: Yususha Sagawa to ano futari – 今日 か ら 俺 は !! 〜 勇者 サ ガ ワ と あ の 二人 編 〜).
We promised it, and here it is: the last work of the master FURUYA enters our catalog.
LUNATIC CIRCUS is the newest series from one of our favorite manga artists, alongside TEIICHI HIGH SCHOOL, CRUSADE OF THE LAMBS, HAPPINESS, HIKARI CLUB and WHERE THE KIDS LIVE.
And, once again, we are sure that those who appreciate Furuya sensei’s refined and disturbing, poetic and grotesque style at the same time will not be disappointed by LUNATIC CIRCUS (ル ナ チ ッ ク サ ー カ ス), a series set in a bizarre circus of post-war Japan, still in serialization course on Comic @ Bunch magazine.
DRIFTING NET CAFÉ
And we close in a big way with a new, disconcerting daydream from Shuzo OSHIMI, the author of DENTRO MARI.
Again Oshimi was able to create a plot that becomes more and more compelling (and disturbing) with each chapter.
In DRIFTING NET CAFÉ (Hyoryuu Net Cafe – 漂流 ネ ッ ト カ フ ェ) the protagonist Koichi, mysteriously finds himself catapulted into a strange world, distorted and dangerous, on the very day when the relaxed life he led up to that moment was about to change with the arrival of a child.
Will Koichi be able to save himself and the other people who have remained, like him, trapped on the edge of reality?
