New Papa ni Itte ne ♥ manga to start next spring

The December issue of Shueisha's Monthly YOU magazine published a one-shot baby-raising essay manga from creator Tomoko Ninomiya (Nodame Cantabile) titled Papa ni Itte ne ♥ on Tuesday. The magazine also revealed in that issue that the manga will formally begin serialization in Monthly YOU next spring.

Ninomiya had given birth to a son in October 2008. She had taken time off from her manga drawing in her last month of her pregnancy to prepare for the birth.

Ninomiya also recently launched her new manga 87 Clockers in the Shueisha's Jump Kai magazine in June.

Del Rey published the 16th volume of Nodame Cantabile (pictured at right) in North America in 2009. The Nodame Cantabile manga was adapted into three television anime series, and has also received live-action drama and film adaptations.

Ninomiya's Papa ni Itte ne ♥ one-shot was published as part of Monthly YOU's renewal. The December issue also began serializations on manga from Mayumi Ishii, Madoka Takadono, Pretz Matsumoto, Yōko Komori, and Naomi Akimoto.
