The josei magazine ITAN is releasing their first round of books on 7/7. They all look interesting, but Bikke’s cover of Aka no Sekai is the most eye-catching. I wish I could add onto my existing orders ;_;
Aka no Sekai stars Regulus, a cool, introverted young man forced to participate in a summer camp by his mother. While outdoor activities and trips are fun, it also forces students to interact more, making Regulus rather nervous.
Despite trying to stay on the fringe, Regulus is caught up in trouble when a classmate paints a room an eerie, deep crimson color, sparking a huge disturbance. ITAN is marketed as an imaginative magazine that breaks genre barriers, so we’ll see if it lives up to the claim of the story’s stormy atmosphere turning into unpredictable plot developments.
