SISYPHEAN was announced as the latest novel to join the Haikasoru literary imprint, and a pair of titles—a haiku volume and an activity book—inspired by the global hit mobile game Neko Atsume: Kitty Collectoralso join the VIZ Media roster.

 

Additional information on each of these titles will be announced in the near future.

 

New VIZ Media Publishing Acquisitions for 2018

 

FIRE PUNCH · Rated ‘M’ For Mature Audiences · Available January 2018

In the not-too-distant past, the Ice Witch blanketed the world in snow, starvation and madness, leading the inhabitants to seek their salvation in fire. With that, an unusual destiny unfolds for two young orphans, Agni and Luna, blessed with the ability to regenerate. But will this ability prove to be more of a curse than a blessing? FIRE PUNCH was a nominee for the 2017 Manga Taisho Award.

 

SISYPHEAN (Novel) · Unrated · Available January 2018

In this award-winning novel by Dempow Torishima, even after the world and humanity itself have been rendered nearly unrecognizable by genetic engineering, a day in the office can feel…Sisyphean. The company stands atop a tiny deck supported by huge iron columns a hundred meters high. The boss there is its president – a large creature of unstable, shifting form once called “human.” The world of his dedicated worker contains only the deck and the sea of mud surrounding it, and the worker’s daily routine is anything but peaceful. A mosaic novel of extreme science and high weirdness, Sisyphean will change the way you see existence itself. Sisyphean was a winner of the prestigious Japan SF Award and also nominated for a Seiun Award.
