Zatch Bell Creator Is Insane!...ly Busy!

Well, I guess he DID take a long break since Zatch Bell ended...

 It's perhaps no surprise to anyone that the creator of Zatch Bell is perhaps a little...kooky. He is, after all, the guy behind “Very Melon” (part two! Though this one actually takes place before the one I posted earlier,  I believe...)
  
But here's further evidence that the man is crazy: within a 30-day period, Makoto Raiku will draw four one-shots and the first chapter of a new series, tat last to be published in Kodansha's first issue of Bessatsu Shounen Magazine.     

The new series is titled Doubutsu no Kuni (Country of Animals), and he'll actually publish an “episode 0” in Kodansha's Weekly Shounen Magazine prior to the new mag's publication, presumably to get readers excited about picking up the new pub. Meanwhile the other one-shots are Oyajuu~Rider (Young King Ours), Class Room (Jump Square) and Aosora (Monthly Shounen Magazine).

And I always feel like I'M busy. Man.
