Kouji Seo, the original creator of the Half & Half manga series, is returning to Kodansha. This was announced in the Weekly Shounen Magazine’s last issue. The work is coming on 9th May in the publisher’s Bessatsu Shounen Magazine.
The story of Half & Half is about the world of beyond life and before death. There is where Yuki and Shinichi meet after dying at the same moment. From beyond or above, a message is given to them, a chance to return shall be given to one of them. The two have a week to decide who shall live and who shall die.
The Half & Half manga was originally a one-shot story by Seo which was published as his debut work in 1996. Since then, the mangaka has published a number of series including Kimi to iru Machi. It was exactly this story under whose last chapter stood the message for the return of Half & Half. Why return when it is a one-shot? Well, actually in 2012 the creator begin serialising the same title and its volume one was published last August.
