Mangaka Shuichi Shigeno, of “Initial D” fame, has released the first volume of his newest street racing manga: “MF Ghost”, on 5th January 2018. “MF Ghost” is serialized in Young Magazine, and published by Kodansha Ltd.
“MF Ghost” follows the exploits of 19-year-old driving genius Kanata Livington, who moved back to Japan after living most of his life in the UK, in the near future where most vehicles no longer run on fossil fuels and are self-driven by on-board AI. A new form of racing dubbed “MFG” is quickly gaining traction, and Kanata tries to prove his worth as the top graduate of one of the UK’s most prominent racing programmes.
Complicating Kanata’s life is Ren Saionji, one the league’s attractive race queens — dubbed the “MGF Angels”. Her job as an MFG race queen is a secret from her friends and family. Returning home from a race one evening, she is shocked to find out that Kanata will be living with her family, as well as confused as she falls completely head over heels for him.
In commemoration of the release, the official race queen team “MFG Angels” will be appearing in the work. They will also be at the “MF Ghost” booth at the Tokyo Auto Salon, held from 12th to 14th January. Last but not least, their official photos will be published at the end of Young Magazine No. 6 released 6th January 2018.
