He may be 91, but Mizuke Shigeru is still youthful enough to start in on another horror manga, this time online.
Mizuki Shigeru always seems to be embracing new things; from relearning how to draw with his right hand after losing his left in the war, to starting a new series online. Although a spin-off of one of his older series, Kappa no Sanpei, the latest addition to his works should feel right at home on the Yawaraka Spirits website. (More stories on manga here at SGCafe)
Kappa no Sanpei: House of God (Kappa no Sanpei Ie no Kami), will continue the adventures of a kappa and his friendship with the boy Sanpei, particularly the jokes they like to play on tanuki. In the original manga, Sanpei is taken in by the kappa for his strong resemblance to them which of course leads to a number of humorous situations. It was popular at the time to merit an anime adaptation.
His manga is set to be released on August 27 as part of a special First Reading Festival edition of Yawaraka Monthly. He will be joining other famous manga artists such as Yuuki Masami (Birdy the Mighty), Inio Asano (Solanin) and Oshikiri Rensuke (Sayuri) in the web magazine.
