In this year’s 33rd issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion, Mangaka Paru Itagaki will be launching a brand new manga titled “Sanda“, about adults and children living in a future where the birth rate is declining.

Interesting fact, the term Sanda (formerly known as Sanshou) is also the name for Chinese Boxing or Chinese Kickboxing, a full-contact combat sport. The Manga will be available to read in next week’s Weekly Shōnen Champion on July 21st. It will consist of a debut with 48 pages, and it will get color pages for three weeks in a row.
