On 15 June 2016, the first volume of Isaha Amenomori’s (story) and Natsuo Ito’s (art) new manga New Shanghai Epicurean (Shin Shanhai Epicurean) will come out. Famous illustrator Shirow Miwa has written an endorsement for the manga on the wraparound.
New Shanghai Epicurean is a picaresque story that starts off when Chris meets Noir. Chris wants to protect the things his deceased mother loved and Noir, an art merchant, takes on his debts. Noir then proceeds to hold illegal evening parties at the mansion, which Chris at first strongly rejects but decides to endure for the sake of protecting the mansion. Then hedonists, who multiply living things and objects and were hated by Chris’ mother with a passion, come to the party and start to play their game, Kon’itsu.
Some bookstores have presents for those who buy the first volume. Yurindo, Sanyodo, Animate and Tora no Ana give out different illustrations as a present. Not all stores of the mentioned chains will give out the present, but a complete list will be announced on the official website of COMIC it (Kadokawa), so please confirm before buying it or simply check at the store.
