Manga launched in 2019 about aspiring manga creator on aimless journey
The July issue of Kadokawa‘s Dengeki Maoh magazine announced on Friday that Kenta Ishizaka‘s Zatsu Tabi -That’s Journey- manga has an anime adaptation in the works. Kadokawa did not reveal more information about the anime.
Ishizaka drew the below illustration to celebrate the anime’s announcement.
The anime also posted a special survey, asking participants which general part of Japan they themselves would like to travel to. The top locale in responses could appear in the anime.
The manga centers on Chika Suzugamori, a college student who has been shopping some manga pitches around to publishers ever since she won a rookie manga award, but keeps getting rejected. Just as she was about to lose hope in ever breaking into the manga industry, she decides on a whim to go traveling without any particular goal.
Ishizaka launched the manga in Dengeki Maoh in March 2019, and it is ongoing. Kadokawa published the manga’s ninth compiled book volume on Friday.
