Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine announced that Peace Maker creator Nanae Chrono and newcomer Kōshō Nakabayashi will start a manga called Paka Run in the magazine's May issue (on sale on March 29). The magazine describes the story as the "first horse-racing battle" manga in which a young girl takes on the sport (comparisons to the National Velvet novel and film aside). Nakabayashi will do the actual drawing for the manga, as Chrono is still drawing the ongoing Vassalord manga in Monthly Comic Blade Avarus magazine. Tokyopop is releasing Chrono's Peace Maker manga in North America, and A.D. Vision released the Peace Maker television anime series and part of Peace Maker's follow-up manga, Peace Maker Kurogane.
