Mushishi's Urushibara Launches Suiiki Manga Next Month


The December issue of Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine has announced on Saturday that Mushishi creator Yuki Urushibara is launching a new manga called Suiiki (Waters) in the next issue on November 25. The fantasy-themed story centers on a middle school student on the swim team during a mysterious summer vacation.

It has been 15 months since Urushibara finished her 1999-2008 Mushishi manga (pictured at right). Del Rey will publish the final three volumes of Mushishi in one omnibus edition next July, and Funimation released Hiroshi Nagahama and Artland's anime adaptation and Katsuhiro Otomo's live-action film version in North America.
