Lost in Translation
Manga creator Miki Yoshikawa (Yankee-kun to Megane-chan) posted on her Twitter account on Wednesday that she will start a new manga in this year's 12th issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine on February 22. Yoshikawa has not yet provided any details regarding the new manga's plot or title.
Yoshikawa ended her Yankee-kun to Megane-chan school comedy manga (pictured at right) in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in May after five years and 211 chapters. That manga inspired a live-action television series with Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen, Akihabara @ DEEP, NANA) as Daichi and Riisa Naka (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Kami no Shizuku) as Hana. The television series ran from April to June of 2010.
Yoshikawa previously published a one-shot "fantastic grade-school student life" manga called Maō no Kyōshitsu (The Devil's Classroom) in the October issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine last September.
