Vertical Comics has another good pickup from NYCC that will appeal to fans as they’ve acquired The Golden Sheep by Kaori Ozaki. Ozaki has had some of their work released previously through the publisher with The God’s Lie while TOKYOPOP delved into most of The Immortal Rain years ago.
The Golden Sheep is looking at a September 2019 premiere from the publisher which will give the work some time to produce additional volumes as there are two out so far in Japan as of last month. It began in September 2017 as serialized in Afternoon magazine.
Plot Concept: Tsugu-chan is separated from her friends (Sora, Yuushin, and Asari) when she moves away. After a few years, she finally returns and is happy to be reunited with them. Tsugu-chan believes that her friends didn’t change, but that doesn’t turn out to be the case.
