VIZ Media announced they will be publishing seven new manga titles this Fall. The seven titles include Cats of the Louvre, No Longer Human, Levius, Levius/Est, The Way of the Househusband, No Guns Life, and an Assassination Classroom Complete Box Set.
VIZ released official descriptions for each series. You can see them below.
Cats of the Louvre
A surreal tale of the secret world of the cats of the Louvre by Eisner-Award winning creator Taiyo Matsumoto. The world-renowned Louvre museum in Paris contains more than just the most famous works of art in history. At night, within the darkened galleries, an unseen and surreal world comes alive – a world only witnessed by the small family of cats that live in the attic. Until now…
Cats of the Louvre is created by Eisner-Award winning creator Taiyo Matsumoto.
No Longer Human
Plagued by a maddening anxiety, the terrible disconnect between his own concept of happiness and the joy of the rest of the world, Yozo Oba plays the clown in his dissolute life, holding up a mask for those around him as he spirals ever downward, locked arm-in-arm with death. Osamu Dazai’s immortal—and supposedly autobiographical—work of Japanese literature, is perfectly adapted here into a manga by Junji Ito. The imagery wrenches open the text of the novel one line at a time to sublimate Yozo’s mental landscape into something even more delicate and grotesque. This is the ultimate in art by Ito, proof that nothing can surpass the terror of the human psyche.
No Longer Human comes author Osamu Dazai and is being adapted into graphic novel form by Junji Ito.
It’s the 19th Century and the world has entered the Era of Rebirth, recovering from the devastating flames of war. The sport of Mechanical Martial Arts has galvanized many nations. Cybernetically augmented fighters turn their blood into steam and their bodies into brutal fighting—and killing—machines. Young Levius is one of those arena battlers, hellbent on winning so he can simply survive.
Levius comes from the mind of Haruhisa Nakata.
In this ongoing series that picks up where LEVIUS ended, things look bleak in the aftermath of the Mechanical Arts arena battle. A new arrival inspires a sense of hope – but she might also signal the end of everything!
Levius/Est is also from the mind of Haruhisa Nakata.
The Way of the Househusband
It’s a day in the life of your average househusband – if your average househusband is the legendary yakuza the “Immortal Dragon”! Yes, this former yakuza legend has left it all behind to become your everyday househusband. But it’s not easy to walk away from the gangster life, and what should be mundane household tasks are anything but!
The Way of the Househusband is written by Kousuke Oono.
No Guns Life
After the war, cyborg soldiers known as the Extended were discharged. Juzo Inui is one of them, a man whose body was transformed, his head replaced with a giant gun! With no memory of his previous life—or who replaced his head and why—Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver, taking on cases involving the Extended.
No Guns Life is created by Tasuka Karasuma.
Assassination Classroom Complete Box Set
The complete box set collection includes all 21 volumes of ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM along with a premium two-sided color poster and a 32-page full-color mini artbook.
Ever caught yourself screaming, “I could just kill that teacher”? What would it take to justify such antisocial behavior and weeks of detention? Especially if he’s the best teacher you’ve ever had? How about blowing up the moon and threatening to do the same to Mother Earth—unless you take him out first?! Plus a reward of a cool 100 million from the Ministry of Defense!
Assassination Classroom is created by Yūsei Matsui.
