    Famous manga artist Mitsuru Adachi is doing a sequel to his own acclaimed manga series Touch. Titled Mix, the new series will debut in the June issue of Shogakukan’s Gessan magazine on May 12.

     

    The story of Mix takes place in the same Meisei Gakuen high school as Touch,only it is set 26 years later. And according to the promotional images which were released in the May issue of Gessan on April 12,the topic of the upcoming project will also be baseball and it will also revolve around certain brothers. The May issue also had a preview of Mix. To celebrate the new series launch, the June issue will bundle a clear file and offer all of its readers a set of postcards with famous lines and art from Adachi’s Touch.

     

    Touch was one of the first sports manga to make it big. It ran from 1981 to 1986 in Weekly Shounen Sunday magazine and sprung 26 volumes and 257 chapters. The story centers around three characters - Uesugi Kazuya, his twin older brother Tatsuya, and Asakura Minami. Kazuya is the darling of his town as he’s talented, hardworking, and the ace pitcher for his middle school baseball team. Tatsuya is a hopeless slacker who’s been living the life of giving up the spotlight to Kazuya, despite the fact that he may be more gifted than him. Minami is the beautiful childhood girlfriend and for all intents, sister from next door who treats both of them as equals. Society largely assumes Kazuya and Minami will become the perfect couple, including Tatsuya. Yet as time progresses, Tatsuya grows to realize that he’s willing to sacrifice anything for the sake of his brother, except at the expense of giving up Minami to Kazuya. And thus the story is told of Tatsuya trying to prove himself over his established younger brother, how it affects the relationship between the three, andboth brothers’ attempts to make Minami’s lifelong dreams come true.
