It has been 18 years since its last long novel "Kasho no Yume/The Dream of Prosperity" in September 2001 (a short story collection "Hisho no Tori/The Birds of Hisho" was released in July 2013).
The first two in the new four volumes will be released on October 12, 2019, then the last two will follow on November 9.
