As reported by Comicbook.com, mangaka Hiromu Arakawa, the creator of the iconic Fullmetal Alchemist series, is working on a new fantasy manga series.
The series is called Yomi no Shigai (The Hinge of the Underworld) and will follow the story of young siblings solving the secret of their village.
Fullmetal Alchemist began as a manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa and published by Enix in 2001 (later Square Enix).
