Lost in Translation
Mayu Shinjo, the manga creator of Sensual Phrase (Kaikan Phrase) and Love Celeb, has announced on Monday that she will draw a one-shot manga in the October issue (on sale on September 4) of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine. Shinjo notes that this new manga is her first work in a shōnen magazine. The issue will also have a special interview with the creator. Details on the manga's title, characters, and story will be revealed in the September issue of the magazine on August 4.
Shinjo launched a separate two-installment manga called Ayakashi no Koi Emaki (The Ghost Love Story Picture Scroll) in this year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine on July 19. She has recently done work in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret and Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Asuka magazines. Last month, Shinjo wrote a much-publicized account of why she left Shogakukan's Shoujo Comic magazine last year. Viz Media publishes Sensual Phrase in North America.
