    is a new manga from Naoki Urasawa (Pineapple Army, , Master Keaton, , , , , , ), published in Big Comic Spirits.

    The first chapter was released last week.

    From the chapter itself: "This story extends from the post-war period to the present day: having lived a pretty and indomitable life.. it's a biography of a woman who doesn't even have a name."

    The title refers to a popular Japanse TV show .

    I think it looks promising. We already have two time periods: 2020 and 1959. The protagonist is a ~12 year old girl in 1959 called Asa (she does have a name..). She seems to be a fast runner. That plus the Olympic Game thematic (in Tokyo in 2020 and 1964) we may get a sport-themed manga, like in Yawara! and Happy! ? I have read comments stating that the exclamation mark in the title is also linking to Yawara! and Happy!.
    It may be larger than running though, since we can see in 2020 a huge fire in Tokyo and a Kaiju-like monster ? Also the cover of the Big Comic Spirit n°45 states "The girl who came to save Japan."

    Let's hope it lasts longer than Mujirushi !
