    Asadora!

    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 !

    I hope too! Second chapter is out, so far so good !

    How lucky you are to have read Yawara! It is one of the last of its manga not yet published here, so I still haven't read it.. And it may never be published given its length and that it would appeal to only a small niche public...:sniff

    Well, the scanlations stopped at chapter 92 volume 8 three years ago.. :scryI do not want to start if I know I will not be able to finish it. It's a dead end.. Maybe I could learn italian, since it was published in Italy..
    It's a shame ... There is still the anime though, but I prefer reading than watching.

    Well ... Italian is an easy language if you know any language derived from Latin ... I try to support you... maybe I can not get it.
