Upcoming Collaboration Between Ghost in the Shell’s Shirow, Excel Saga’s Rikudou. Wat.
Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, there really isn’t much more information than what’s in the title. Kadokawa Shoten’s Newtype Ace magazine announced on Monday that Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed) and Koushi Rikudou (Excel Saga) would be coming out with a new manga together in the next issue on October 10. Shirow is writing the story, while Rikudou is handling the art. The only other bit of info is the teaser image at the top of this very article.
While I have great respect for both of the authors, I am unsure of how their individual and very different styles will blend. There isn’t much more we can do but wait until October, however much we want to see what this bizarre lovechild will end up looking like.
