Mizukami’s Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer (Hoshi no Samidare) manga was serialized in Shōnen Gahōsha’s seinen magazine, Young King OURs since April 2005, with the final volume of the series published in Nov, 2010. Seven Seas Entertainment published and distributed the series in North America.
Seven Seas Entertainment describes the plot of the series as follows;
“Everything about college student Amamiya Yuuhi is average: grades, looks and his blasé outlook on life. So what happens when he awakens one day to a talking lizard, who informs him that there is a gigantic hammer in outer space, poised to split the Earth into pieces, and requests his allegiance in the fight against the forces of evil? Pretend it never happened! Unfortunately for Yuuhi, a little bit of coercion in the form of a super-powered princess prevents him from returning to his mediocre life-as-usual.
In the adventure of his lifetime, Yuuhi will join forces with the unpredictable princess and seek out a motley crew of companions to fight back against an evil mage and his horrifyingly powerful homunculus before the Biscuit Hammer destroys the planet!“
Mizukami is also the author of Spirit Circle and is currently working on the TV anime Planet With. A manga was launched for the latter series by Mizukami in Young King OURs on April 28, 2018, and an anime television series by J.C.Staff premiered on July 8, 2018. As of July 2021, the manga has entered its final arc.
