Initial D creator Shuuichi Shigeno previously had to put his sequel manga MF Ghost on hiatus due to his poor health back in November, and it just came back to the pages of Weekly Young Magazine on February 20. The return isn’t long-lasting, though, because MF Ghost is getting ready to go back on hiatus ahead of the story’s “final battle.”
While there’s no return date at the moment, Shigeno says the series is about “four-fifths” of the way through its story. Shigeno added that he is nervous about his ability to draw until the finale, so hopefully this extra time resting will help.
Shigeno’s MF Ghost manga has a TV anime adaptation on the way in 2023. Kodansha USA publishes the manga—which first launched in the pages of Weekly Young Magazine in September 2017—and describes it below.
The author of Initial D has roared back onto the track with another hit! In a near future where cars have mostly switched over to sustainable power, combustion engine racing is a rarity. The MFG is the last major race for this dying breed, and half-Japanese Kanata Rivington has come back to try his luck. But that’s not all he’s come to Japan to do…he’s searching for his father, too. Can even the ambitious Kanata accomplish all he’s set out to do?
