Yō Kanebayashi draws Duel Masters LOST Tsuioku no Suishō manga for project; manga launches on February 1
The February issue of Shogakukan‘s Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed a new project for Shigenobu Matsumoto‘s Duel Masters manga titled Duel Masters LOST on Monday. The project includes a new manga titled Duel Masters LOST Tsuioku no Suishō (Duel Masters LOST: Crystal of Remembrance), which will launch on the Weekly CoroCoro Comic website on February 1. Matsumoto is credited for the original work, and Yō Kanebayashi is drawing the manga. Kanebayashi posted an illustration to celebrate the project’s announcement.
“LOST” is an “alternate time story” that progresses at the same time as the current story of Duel Masters Win, and the Duel Masters LOST Tsuioku no Suishō manga depicts a never-before-seen world. It centers on 16-year-old Win Kirifuda — the protagonist of the Duel Masters Win anime — who has lost everything. He is then drawn into a battle to regain the world he once desired.
The Duel Masters LOST project also includes the “Abyss Revolution Gaiden: Death Bell Crystal” card pack, which connects to the world of “LOST,” and draws players into a mysterious battle. The card pack will go on sale in Japan on February 17.
The franchise also launched the Duel Masters Win: Complex Duel-hen manga in Monthly Coro Coro Comics on Monday.
