Tomoko Ninomiya to draw cover of Shueisha's new magazine without target demographic

Nodame Cantabile manga creator Tomoko Ninomiya is launching a new series in Jump X, a new magazine from the Japanese publisher Shueisha. Ninomiya will illustrate the cover of the magazine's inaugural issue. The magazine's website now features a preview page (pictured at right) that is counting down to June 25.

The third issue of Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine had revealed the plans for the new magazine earlier this month. Shueisha describes Jump X as a "pure manga magazine" — one that is not pigeonholed to any age range or gender. Jump X's "X" is pronounced as "kai," the Japanese suffix for something that has been updated or improved.

Del Rey published the 16th volume of Nodame Cantabile in North America in 2009.
