The May 2019 issue of Shogakukan’s Big Comic Original Zōkan magazine has announced that Taiyo Matsumoto will launch a new manga titled Tokyo Higoro (Tokyo Everyday) in the magazine’s July 2019 issue on June 12, 2019. The magazine describes the manga as a “requiem for the anguished, lost, and wandering in life over 50.” With Japan entering a new era, the story centers on Shiosawa, a former manga editor for a major publisher. After going into early retirement, he now finds himself wondering about what the world of manga means to him: is it work, a form of expression, or friendship?
Matsumoto’s other works include Tekkonkinkreet (Black & White), Blue Spring, GoGo Monster, No. 5, Sunny, and Cats of the Louvre.
