As the author’s first shonen manga, Mashiro no Oto has been serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine since 2010 and has released 25 tankobon volumes. Its story centers on a 16-year-old Tsugaru Jamisen player, Setsu Sawamura. After the death of his grandfather, who was his shamisen teacher, he has been unable to play the instrument. In order to find his “favorite sound” that has been lost, he travels to Tokyo with no destination. He is rescued by a woman working in a cabaret club, Yuna Tachiki. As an opening act of the club’s live show, he ends up playing Tsugaru Jamisen on the stage.
Hiroaki Akagi (Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san) is attached to direct the TV anime adaptation at Shin-Ei Animation (Crayon Shin-chan, Doraemon). The Tsugaru Jamisen performances in the anime are supervised by Yoshida Brothers.
