The first 2018 issue of Shogakukan‘s Big Comic Superior magazine revealed on Friday that the magazine will reveal “shocking news” for Mitsuharu Yanamoto‘s Hibiki: Sh?setsuka ni Naru H?h? (Hibiki ~How to Become a Novelist~) manga on December 22.
In the manga’s story, a handwritten novel manuscript is sent into a rookie contest, but it doesn’t meet the conditions and is thrown in the trash. Still, an editor named Hanai picks it up by chance and believes it is a revolutionary novel. The author’s name is Hibiki Akui, but there is no contact address on the submission. Meanwhile, Hibiki – a 15-year-old student – joins her school’s literary club, not knowing that Hanai is trying to track her down.
Yanamoto launched the manga in Big Comic Superior in August 2014. Shogakukan released the seventh compiled volume on August 10, and will release the eighth volume (seen right) on December 27. The manga won the 10th Manga Taisho award earlier this year.
