Vertical Licenses Utsubora Manga
Omnibus of psychological mystery manga is planned for June 2013
Japanese printed media publisher Vertical announced at the recent Anime Weekend Atlanta that they have licensed two-volume seinen mystery Utsubora: the Story of a Novelist, by Asumiko Nakamura, a prolific short manga writer who frequently mixes yaoi, gender considerations and psychologically intense subjects.
In the story, after a novel's beautiful acquaintance dies under mysterious circumstances, he meets a girl claiming to be her twin sister, before coming under suspicion by his editors and the police for plagiarism and worse.
An omnibus is planned for June 2013.
