Osamu Akimoto Publishes 4 New Manga in 2017

The 2016 No.42 issue of Shūeisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine announced on September 17,
2016 that KochiKame's Osamu Akimoto will publish four new manga across four different Shūeisha publications in 2017. The four manga - which are not necessarily series and are referenced as short stories - are titled Kyoto Jogakuin Monogatari -Finder- (Kyoto Girls Academy Story -Finder-), Mr. Clice, Black Tiger, and Ii Yu Da Ne!, although the titles and story are subject to change before publication.

Kyoto Jogakuin Monogatari -Finder- will run in Weekly Young Jump, and will center on the lives of students at a girls academy on the outskirts of Kyoto.

Mr. Clice will run in Jump Square, and will be a revival of Akimoto's similarly titled manga, which ended in 2007 in Monthly Sh
ōnen Jump. Like the previous manga, the action comedy will center on Jim Clice, a Japanese secret agent with the body of a woman but the mind of a man.

Black Tiger will run in Grand Jump, and will be set in a wasteland where survival is a struggle. The "violence gun action" story will center on a beautiful gunslinger who travels the frontier.

Ii Yu Da Ne! will run in Ultra Jump, and will be a sequel to KochiKame. It is set in a bath house adjacent to a police station located in Tokyo's Shitamachi area, and will feature a beautiful foreign woman.
