Purchasers of the series can also get a special "MAO x Inuyasha" collaboration sticker
The fifth volume of Rumiko Takahashi's latest dark fantasy manga series MAO is released in Japan today on August 18. 17 months after the author's previous series Kyoukai no Rinne/Rin-ne ended, MAO started serialization in the magazine in May 2019.
To promote the release, Weekly Shonen Sunday's official YouTube channel has started streaming a 20-second CM narrated by Sesshomaru (CV: Ken Narita), one of the popular characters from Takahashi's internationally successful series Inuyasha.
Also, in commemoration of the release, a special campaign has been held at bookstores in Japan since August 14. Purchasers of any of the five volumes of MAO can also get an original "MAO x Inuyasha" collaboration sticker (four types) one per one volume.
