VIZ Media has announced it is bringing Bisco Hatori’s manga series, Behind the Scenes, to English readers in February.
In BEHIND THE SCENES!!, Ranmaru Kurisu comes from a family of hardy, rough-and-tumble fisherfolk and he sticks out at home like a delicate, artistic sore thumb. It’s given him a raging inferiority complex and a permanently pessimistic outlook. Now that he’s in college, he’s hoping to find a sense of belonging. But after a whole life of being left out, does he even know how to fit in?!
As Volume 1 opens, it’s two months into Ranmaru’s college career, and if he’s learned one thing, it’s that he’s really uncomfortable around other people. But when he stumbles into a zombie mob attack, he’s totally forced out of his comfort zone! Of course it’s just a movie shoot, but when he wakes up from his ignoble faint, he’s been whisked away behind the scenes with the Art Squad! Could this group of weirdos be what Ranmaru’s been looking for all his life?!
There is so much comic book content out there, I often find it difficult to get to everything, or even one tenth of everything, which is a shame as this manga series seems rather interesting.
The series is rated T for Teens, and if you want to pick up the book on February 2, 2016, you’ll only need to hand your LCS owner $9.99.
