Five Star Stories

Rejoice! Five Star Stories to break out of hiatus

8:00 AM on 12.17.2012 // Salvador G Rodiles

Nagano's GLORIO mecha manga is back!

Now that Mamoru Nagano has finished working on Gothicmade, his next task is to continue his work on the Five Star Stories manga. Unlike most other mangakas, Nagano took a break in 2006 to focus on other projects and works, which is a rare reason for someone in the manga industry to go on hiatus. 

Five Star Stories will return in April 10 on the May 2013 issue of Newtype, and there's going to be a new robot model kit in the works for toy collectors, which is a nice extra for the fans that have been waiting for years. And when they mean return, the story is going to continue from where it left off, so you won't have to worry about some sort of reboot taking place. 

One treat that we can look forward to is that we can forward to seeing how Nagano has improved over these past six years. With Gothicmade doing a fine job in showing off his style, it's going to be a breathtaking spectacle to see his work on paper again -- the excitement is killing me! 

So besides me and Hiroko, is anyone else looking forward to reading the rest of the Five Star Stories?
