With Kimi no Iru Machi (KnIM) manga ended back on February 2014, Seo Kouji has already started his next project, Fuuka, as it was hinted in last chapter of Kimi no Iru Machi. It’s about Yuu Haruna who meets a girl, Fuuka Akitsuki, who has an ability to draw people to her. Fuuka manga is published weekly in Weekly Shonen Magazine. If you have a twitter and have not followed @seokouji, I recommend you to do so. He often posted some sketches from Fuuka using his twitter account. Also, check out his twitter profile for some Fuuka goodness.
There are 11 chapters of Fuuka so far and I am pretty much up-to-date to the latest chapter; truth to be told, I totally forgot about Seo’s new manga until this weekend. From what I gathered so far, I say the pace started slowly but it started to pick up on chapter 5/6. Without revealing too much of the story so far, Seo’s new work is infused with ‘music’ theme in it while at the same time, he keeps romantic comedy aspect in Fuuka; after all, romantic comedy is what he’s known for from his previous series, Suzuka and Kimi no Iru Machi. Well he’s also known to give his reader a plenty of unexpected surprises ^^;;.
With that said, give Fuuka a try and you will enjoy it thoroughly if you’re a fan of Suzuka and Kimi no Iru Machi.
