Not Simple Kicks Off Viz’s New Year of Manga

I recall reading about Not Simple—a unique-looking manga by Natsume Ono (Ristorante Paradiso—previously, but Viz is rolling out the official press releases for the title, and it’s certainly a noteworthy release.

Not Simple‘s story centers on Ian, a young man traveling far and wide to reunite with his sister. The tale unfurls in reverse order through the eyes of a reporter putting Ian’s story to page in a novel appropriately titled not simple.

A preview of the manga launches today at the Ikki site, so be sure to go check it out, and let us know what you think over in the forums. The full book is scheduled to hit shelves on January 19, 2010 for $14.99.
