If you’re tired of Attack on Titan and want a new horror manga series to sink your teeth into (no pun intended), then check out Happiness by Shūzō Oshimi, which is getting an English translation later this year, as confirmed by publisher Kodansha at Anime Central in Chicago.
Happiness follows a reclusive teenage boy who finds his life being turned upside down after a vampire attacks him in an alleyway at night and turns him into one of the undead. Now, I know that there are a lot of challenges associates with high school, but resisting the urge to bite your classmates’ necks is certainly a new one on me.
And speaking of Attack on Titan, Kodansha also confirmed at the event that they’re publishing a coloring book based on the series and a reference book. I’ve never been a fan of adult coloring books, but I love Attack on Titan, so I’ll try to be optimistic about this.
A supernatural story of sexual awakening, growing up, and suburban vampirism from the acclaimed creator of The Flowers of Evil. A boy out walking at night is attacked by a girl in an alley. She sucks his blood and gives him a choice: life or death. He chooses life but finds himself nearly overwhelmed by a new thirst and a fascination with the necks of his classmates…
This disturbing, dark, and at times uncomfortable funny series gives us an absurd take on the awkwardness of growing up and dealing with your sexuality.
