Marital Bliss as Vertical Licenses Moyoco Anno’s Insufficient Direction

Insufficient Direction

Vertical Inc had their first of a few upcoming license announcements this week at Anime Expo:

Insufficient Direction – Moyoco Anno

This amusing looking one-shot is an autobiographical piece about Moyoco Anno’s relationship, and eventual marriage, to Hideaki Anno. Moyoco Anno already has a fair sized following among manga readers – her most recent title was Vertical Inc’s Sakuran – but I’m curious to see if this being a story staring the creator of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Hideaki Anno, boosts it as well.

You can look at a view sample pages for this book on its page. In her books, Moyoco Anno often depicts herself with a baby-avatar and from the preview it looks like she’s continuing to use that in Insufficient Direction. It might take some careful reading to remember that the ‘baby’ is Moyoco Anno herself. Looks to be a funny read though!

Vertical Inc dates the release for this book in Spring 2014.
