Hideo Azuma to Publish Disappearance Diary Sequel Manga
The October issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion Retsu magazine announced last Tuesday that Chaco Abeno and Saki Okuse will begin serializing a new manga titled Draw in the November issue of the magazine, which is scheduled to be released on October 8.
The manga is described as a “modern-day dark witch story,” and revolves around Umi, a girl who suddenly meets two witches on her way to school. This is the beginning of a fragile and beautiful story of those who hold sadness in their hearts.
Manga creator Hideo Azuma will publish his Shissō Nikki 2: Al-Chū Byōtō (Disappearance Diary 2: The Ward for Alcoholics) through East Press on October 6 — eight years after announcing this sequel. The autobiographical story follows Azuma when he is admitted into a hospital for alcoholism. The manga depicts the addicted patients, doctors, and the caring yet strict nurses that Azuma encountered in the ward.
Like the first Disappearance Diary volume, the sequel volume includes a discussion between Azuma and fellow manga creator Miki Tori at the end.
