New Series Acma:Game by Mebu and Megumi Kouji

Acma:Game began serialisation in volume 19 of Weekly Shonen Magazine.
Mebu is the story-writer and Megumi Kouji is the artist.

The manga centers around Teruaki Oda, a high school senior gifted in smarts, looks, and money. This seemingly perfect scion of Japan's powerful Oda Group gets caught in a nightmarish game with the son of the Belmont mafia family's boss.
     The artist of this series, Megumi Kouji, happens to be the older sister of manga creator Hiroyuki, who is the author of Aho Girl which is also running in the same magazine.
It is unusual for siblings to create manga let alone in the same magazine. The last known example was when Tetsuya Chiba (Ashita no Joe) and his younger brtoher Taro Nami serialised Ashita Tenki ni Naare and Kakkeyoi, respectively in Weekly Shonen Magazine in the 1990s.

Megumi Kouji is an experienced manga artist whereas Mebu is still a rookie. However if Mebu creates a great story, then I am sure this series will be a success.
