Teasing Master Takagi-san
by Soichiro Yamamoto

The manga is inspiring a television anime next year.
by Hiroumi Aoi
The story follows an average, albeit untidy guy named Tahatsu Tsukiyo. Tahatsu’s peaceful everyday life comes to an end when man-eating goldfish overtake Shibuya. The fish are everywhere, filling the famous scramble crossing, hanging near the Hachiko statue, and even floating through the city center all the while eating as many humans as they can. The unprecedented crisis marks the “worst survival competition in history.”
Fruits Basket another

Manga sequel to Takaya’s original Fruits Basket manga. The manga takes place after Tohru has graduated high school, and features a girl named Sawa who has just entered the high school. When the manga started Takaya said the main cast (Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo) would not appear in the new series, but might be mentioned.
