News Fruits Basket's Takaya to Start Liselotte & Witch's Forest

This year's 10th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Fruits Basket creator Natsuki Takaya will launch a manga series called Liselotte and Witch's Forest (Liselotte to Majo no Mori) in the 12th issue on May 20. The "fantasy of love and courage" centers around Liselotte — a girl who, until now, has lived a different life from others on the very easternmost tip of a country. Takaya will draw the front cover of Hana to Yume's 12th issue as well as a color opening page for the new manga's first 52-page chapter.
Takaya is best known for her 1998-2006 Fruits Basket manga which Tokyopop first published in North America in 2004. Director Akitaro Daichi and Studio DEEN adapted the story into a 2001 television anime series which Funimation began releasing in North America the following year. After Takaya ended Fruits Basket in 2006, she drew Hoshi wa Utau (Twinkle Stars Like Singing A Song) from 2007 until this year.
