News Series Ai ni Iku yo by George Morikawa

In issue 31 of Weekly Shonen Magazine, George Morikawa, author of Hajime no Ippo started new series Ai ni Iku yo.
Ai ni Iku yo is based on Nobumi's Ue wo Muite Arukō! (I look up when I walk down) picture book about the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster. Nobumi traveled to the areas affected by the earthquake as a volunteer two weeks after it struck, and Ue wo Muite Arukō! documents that experience. 

It is incredible to have one manga series run in a magazine both two is truly extraordinary. Hajime no Ippo is a great piece of sports manga, Morikawa-sensei's new work will in some ways so a side of a real life catastrophe that happened last year.
