Jiro Ando Launches New Manga

The December 2018 issue of Shinchosha’s Monthly Comic @Bunch magazine has published the first chapter of Jiro Ando’s Shiro Kyotō (The White Tower) manga.

The manga adapts Toyoko Yamasaki’s 1965 novel of the same name, but moves the setting from the Showa period to modern-day Osaka. The manga begins with Gorō Zaizen, a doctor and associate professor at the Naniwa University Hospital, performing an emergency surgery to save a man’s life, which earns him the attention of the media.
