Back in May, we reported that Flowers Magazine would be running a Revolutionary Girl Utena chapter. Well, in honor of the 20th anniversary of this series, manga artist Saitou Chiho will be releasing a 60-page new, original chapter in the September issue of Flowers. The 20th Anniversary Facebook group has released a number of images from the magazine.
We know that this chapter is called “After the Revolution” (okay, yes, I squeed at that) and that there will be at least another chapter released this winter.
Thanks to YNN Correspondent Shannon L for sending along the news link and for reminding me to order the magazine! (I missed getting the first issue of the new Card Captor Sakura. boo….) You can order the magazine in print from Amazon JP (or other reputable JP vendor) or order it with a Japanese bookstore chain like Kinokuniya or Sanseido if you are in or near a city. Undoubtedly, if there are any extras, you may be able to get them on Amazon through a buyer, but it looks like Shogakukan is not a publisher that is embracing digital, yet. I’ll follow up with links and check back with you if it becomes available digitally.
You may remember I’ve commented that Saitou-sensei’s work has really hit extraordinary heights in her series, Torikaebaya. I cannot *wait* to see Utena and Anthy rendered with confident maturity. This cover is already pretty damn good. And they’ve also released this:
As soon as I get a copy, I’ll be sure to tell you how it is! (Oh please, oh please oh please be good….!)
