On April 16, seven years after his last manga publication, DJ Teck no Morning Attack
, Katsuhiro Otomo
published a one-shot in this year's ninth issue of Futabasha's Manga Action
Titled Kibun wa Mou Sensou 3 (Datta kamo Shirenai)
, or The Mood is Already War 3 (Or May Have Been)
, the one-shot is a sequel to the manga Kibun wa Mou Sensou
. Serialized in Manga Action from 1980 to 1981, the manga was a joint project between Otomo (art) and Toshihiko Yahagi
(story). It depicts the adventures of two Japanese men (Hachimaki and Megane) and an American man (Bowie), volunteer soldiers whose paths cross during a fictitious war between the Soviet Union and China. A previous sequel titled Kibun wa Mou Sensou 2.1
was published in 2002 with Yahagi again handling the story, but Otomo was not involved.
Otomo became a household name in the West after the release of Akira
, which was an adaptation of his own manga
of the same name, serialized weekly in Young Magazine
from 1982 to 1990. Since then he's worked as an artist, director, and screenwriter for anime, creating a number of original works while continuing his work as a manga illustrator and writer.
