Hokazono Masaya has been hard at work on his new Freak Island spinoff which seems to be something like grimm’s fairy tales, from his Twitter at least that’s the impression he gives. As you may have noticed characters such as Marie and Kaoru are present though at the moment it’s unknown what shape or form their characters will take in this new manga as now there are many children. Hmm…I’m thinking Children of the corn or some kind of wicker man thing with the masks going on. Apparently he’s finished work on the second chapter of this manga though he hasn’t given an indication on what magazine if any at all it will be published in.
Hopefully some more news of this will come out in the future considering previously he had stated that the final draft for Freak Island was finished over a month ago.
Here is all the Freak Island/Kichikujima chapters in English at the moment, translated by Usarei Translations (1-21) and myself (22-45). I took the liberty of compressing the original chapters done by Usarei as they were far over blown in size for some reason. They are far smaller in comparison now thankfully.
Now if your wondering why there hasn’t been a release of Freak Island in the last few months that’s because the next volume or even chapter for that matter hasn’t been released and whenever that will be the case is up in the air at this point as Masaya Hokazono is working on spin off of some sorts.
