Shuuichi Shigeno (Initial D) launched the MF Phantom manga in September 2017. The 12th volume compiled was shipped to Japan on September 6.
The series is set in the 2020s, when self-driving cars are ubiquitous in Japan. The manga centers on Kanata Livington, a Japanese driver who returns to Japan after graduating at the top of his class at a racing school in England. The series also focuses on the MFG, a racing circuit on public roads that has gained worldwide attention.
Shigeno ended his Initial D manga in Young Magazine in July 2013, and Tokyopop published the beginning of this manga in North America, and Kodansha Comics and Comixology offer the full manga in English. The manga has inspired several animated television series, a live-action movie, several original video animation projects, and a hit game line. The manga recently inspired a trilogy of animated films, the third of which opened in February 2016.
