In the 19th issue of Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior magazine, released on September 8, it was unveiled that renowned manga author Shūzō Oshimi is currently in the planning stages for his next manga project. While the magazine provided this exciting tidbit, no further details regarding the upcoming manga were disclosed.
Notably, Oshimi recently concluded his manga series titled “Welcome Back, Alice” (Okaeri Alice) on August 9. This captivating series made its debut in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine back in April 2020.

The seventh and final compiled volume of the manga is set to be published by Kodansha on October 6. It’s worth mentioning that Kodansha USA Publishing released the fifth volume of this series just this past Tuesday.
Oshimi’s literary repertoire includes the highly acclaimed “The Flowers of Evil” manga, which found an English audience through Vertical. This manga served as the inspiration for a 2013 television anime series, as well as a live-action film that hit theaters in September 2019.
Additionally, Oshimi’s “Inside Mari” manga saw adaptation into a live-action series in March 2017, while his “Drifting Net Café” manga was also the basis for a live-action series in 2009. His “Sweet Poolside” manga even inspired a live-action film in 2014.
In February 2015, Oshimi introduced readers to “Happiness,” a manga that graced the pages of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine until its conclusion in March 2019. This series is being released in English by Kodansha USA Publishing, and it is another testament to Oshimi’s storytelling prowess. Vertical is also contributing to Oshimi’s recognition by publishing his “Blood on the Tracks” manga.
Furthermore, manga enthusiasts can explore Oshimi’s work through Denpa, which has released “Shino Can’t Say Her Name” (Shino-chan wa Jibun no Namae ga Ienai).
This manga, which delves into the complexities of communication, even inspired a live-action film that debuted in Japan in July 2018. Denpa also introduced English-speaking readers to Oshimi’s “Miss Kusakabe” manga.
