The fifth edition of the Publishing Company Tezucomi Mikro Micro Magazine from Osamu Tezuka start making a new series that is manga Bokutengō owned by Kyōjū Monogatari on Tuesday. This series is inspired by manga The Vampires Tezuka’s.

This manga takes place in Modern Kyoto (as opposed to Tokyo in the previous manga) and centers on aspiring manga creators, Ako Kitayama. One day, while on the platform of a train station, he witnesses a battle between a “hunter” and another young man who can also change. He decided to use the incident as story material for his manga. Ako submitted a draft storyboard for the manga to her editor. But she doesn’t just reject the manga, she says “He told me to take you,” leading Ako to a young man who suddenly appears in the room. The man brought Ako to the head of his clan.

The first part of The Vampire ran in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday Magazine from 1966 to 1967, followed by the second part in Shueisha’s Shonen Book Magazine from 1968 to 1969.
