Gomeyuki Nishima draws a near-future action story based on an upcoming board game
Kodoani.com – Author Lycoris Recoil, Asaura, and artist Gomeyuki Nishima have officially launched a new manga titled “Double Helix Blossom” on Shogakukan’s Weekly Coro Coro Comic page on Monday. SWAV (the creator of Tsui no Stella) did the character designs.
The manga is set in the near future and begins with the awakening of police officer Kiku Shinonome, who was put into a cryogenic state for 60 years to prevent a fatal injury. In a strange new world, she is forced to team up with Kyo Tsukisagari, a famous criminal but armed with psychic powers. Together, they solve paranormal incidents, even as their personalities clash.
“Double Helix Blossom” will also feature an upcoming board game from Masato Uesugi and Noriaki Watanabe, the team that previously had success on “Kaiju on the Earth: Vulcanus.”
The anime “Lycoris Recoil” premiered in July 2022, directed and written by Shingo Adachi. Similar to “Double Helix Blossom,” “Lycoris Recoil” also focuses on an unlikely duo, is set in the near future and focuses on assassin agents. The anime series has planned a new anime project.
