Recipient of the Akatsuka Award from Japan’s preeminent manga publication Weekly Shōnen Jump, Shuzo Noguchi presents his unpublished manga series. This story set in the classic period of old Edo, won Super Jump’s Best Manga Award, but was set aside after Shuzo had sustained an injury to his hand leaving him unable to continue the work. He then switched gears from manga artist to producer in the world of film and anime.

Shuzo Noguchi is now back to finish the manga he started, but this time with the helping hands of the Kickstarter community!

Born in Kyoto. During his university years mentored under the author of Lone Wolf and Cub, Kazuo Koike. Selected as a finalist for the 29th Shueisha Weekly Shōnen Jump Akatsuka Award. Worked on theWeekly Shōnen Jump best-selling series, Slam Dunk (author: Takehiko Inoue). A proliferate manga artist who, due to a hand injury, was forced to quit his manga career. He later went on to do design and illustration, and produced, directed and did script writing for film and animated movies. He is currently a professor of the Art and Design College at Osaka Seikei University, working to bring up the next generation of young talent.

It is the Temmei era of Edo Japan (1781~1789). A time of seemingly never ending famine and natural disasters. A time when even the sympathies of man were naught but ruin and the very soul of human nature was in doubt. During this Edo, a string of murders involving crooked merchants brought rise to the name “Hanya the Street Slayer.” A chance happening of events led Genshu to be blamed as the murderer after picking up the Hanya mask the killer was named for. In the fall of heavy rain, Genshu learns the surprising identity of the true killer.

プロジェクトについて

『江戸 玄秀診察禄』(えど げんしゅうみたてろく)

日本で最も有名な漫画雑誌の一つである「週刊少年ジャンプ」にて、赤塚賞を受賞した作者が、連載用に作ろうとしていた作品。日本を代表する時代劇を題材に制作に着手したが、手の怪我により未完成のままとなり、作者はその後、映画やアニメの世界のプロデューサーに転身することに。今回は、もう一度、自分の手で描いた未完の作品を完成させたいと考え、キックスタータープロジェクトに参加。

作者紹介

京都生まれ。大学在籍時に劇画「子連れ狼」の原作者 小池一夫氏に師事。その後、第29回集英社「週刊少年ジャンプ赤塚賞」にて準入選を獲得。週刊少年ジャンプにて記録的な大ヒットとなった「スラムダンク」(井上雄彦著)のスタッフとして活躍。マンガ家としても著作を多数発表するが、手の怪我により漫画家を断念。その後、デザイナー、イラストレーターとしても活動し、映画・アニメのプロデューサー・ディレクター、脚本家としても活躍。現在は大阪成蹊大学 芸術学部にて教授を務め、後進の指導にあたっている。

作品内容

江戸の天明期以降、飢饉や天災などが続き、人心も荒廃していた世情不安の時代。江戸では「辻斬り般若」と呼ばれる事件により、悪徳商人が次々と殺害されていた。ひょんなことから辻斬りの般若面を拾ってしまった玄秀は殺人容疑をかけられ事件に巻き込まれていく。そして豪雨が続くある日、玄秀が見つけた意外な真犯人とは・・・。
