The latest issue of Kodansha’s Evening magazine announced that a new story is coming from ERASED creator Kei Sanbe. On November 26th, the magazine will publish the first chapter of Mizutamari ni Ukabu Shima (The Island Where Puddles Float).
This suitably enigmatic-sounding series was also given a small teaser description with its announcement:
We struggle to live because we have hope.
We try our best to be happy because there is someone whom we should protect.
We believe in tomorrow and walk forward because there is a person in the far off distance.
An older brother and younger sister who spend their days waiting for their beloved mother.
A checkered fate suddenly visits the older brother, who is thinking of his sister.
In the middle of a downpour of rain, the “story” begins.
Well, colour us intrigued. The first chapter will be a bumper one at 44 pages long, which should let readers get a good look at where this manga will go. Or perhaps not, if this new story is anything like ERASED.
