Star Fruit Books has announced that it has licensed Hideshi Hino’s The City of Pigs (Kyōfu!! Buta no Machi: Akuma ga Machi ni Yattekuru) horror manga. The company noted that the release will mark the first time in more than a decade that one of Hino’s manga is getting an English release.
The story of the manga is described as:
One night, under a blood red moon glimmering with demonic beauty, a group of devilish creatures armed with axes and spears came riding into a quiet city on horseback. One by one, they loaded the villagers up into cages and carried them off without any explanation… I barely managed to escape alive.
Pre-orders for The City of Pigs manga will start in July 2021, and Star Fruit Books plans to release the manga in the fourth quarter of 2021. The one-volume manga originally debuted in Japan in 1985.
