Manga creator Kia Asamiya announced on his Twitter account that he will launch a new manga titled Speope!! (Space Opera!!) in the May 2019 issue of Shonengahosha’s Young King Ours magazine on March 30, 2019.
The manga centers on the protagonist Opera Cat Rune and the protagonist’s machine, the “Fragile,” as they travel through space. At the same time, Kamon the Robot contemplates where it is from, where it is headed, and what it will become.
Asamiya’s other works include Silent Möbius, Steam Detectives, Compiler, and Junk: Record of the Last Hero.
This year’s sixth issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Young Magazine has announced that Kia Asamiya’s Silent Möbius QD (Quadriga) manga will end in the next issue on June 20, 2018.
The story is set 17 years after Asamiya’s original paranormal police manga Silent Möbius, which debuted in 1988.
Asamiya launched Silent Möbius QD in August 2013 and Kodansha published the fourth compiled volume on April 20, 2018.
