Kazuo Koike to Write a Magical Girl Manga

75 year-old manga writer Kazuo Koike has announced his plan to write a magical girl manga series titled “Maho Shojo Mimitsuki Mimi no QED.” Koike, the acclaimed creator of Lone Wolf & Cub and Crying Freeman, explained that he was excited and inspired by the Puella Magica Madoka Magica anime television series, encouraged to try creating his own magical girl story that involves advancing science and medicine making magic obsolete. In order to emphasize the theme of fewer girls studying modern “magic,” and the real life trend of fewer Japanese women studying engineering, the “Mimitsuki Mimi” manga story will be drawn by an actual female engineering school student.
