Manga creator Arata Miyatsuki launched a new manga titled Tsugunai Mahō Shōjo Kalenza (Kalenza, the Magical Girl of Redemption) on Shogakukan’s Manga ONE app on Tuesday. Miyatsuki is writing the story, while Tōta Shimouchi is drawing the art.
The manga’s story begins when a girl named Yuki takes her own life after being bullied at school, while her friend Hina blames herself and regrets all the things that she was unable to say to Yuki. Hina meets a man who only calls himself “026” and signs a contract with him that grants him special powers.
Miyatsuki and Yūya Kanzaki recently ended their Funōhan (Impossibility Defense) manga last November. Shueisha published the manga’s 12th and final volume on January 19. Kanzaki and Miyatsuki launched the manga in Shueisha’s Grand Jump magazine in 2013.
At a certain park, there is a mysterious man, who has red eyes and a black suit, that people can go to and request him to kill someone. His assassinations can never be blamed on him because he takes no illegal action. His strength is in the power of suggestion and the arrangement of events. He accepts these requests, all the while privately mocking the foolishness of those whose unwise wishes he grants.
The manga inspired a live-action film adaptation in February 2018, as well as a four-episode miniseries adaptation that premiered on dTV in December 2017.
