Masami Tsuda, the creator of the Kareshi Kanojo no Jijō (Kare Kano or His and Her Circumstances) manga and anime series, will launch the Chotto Edo Made manga series in the July issue of Hakusensha's LaLa manga magazine, which will go on sale on May 24. The announcement was made in the June issue, which was released on Thursday. The comedy story is set in an ultra-prestigious middle school at the height of Edo-era Tokyo, over 150 years ago. It will center around a son of the ruling Tokugawa clan's Mito family and a daughter of an elite Tokugawa shogun.
This series will be only the second major manga that Tsuda has created since Kare Kano ran from 1995 to 2005. Her last series that lasted longer than one magazine installment was the two-volume Eensy-Weensy Monster. Tokyopop published Kare Kano in North America.
