This year's 17th issue of Shueisha's Margaret manga anthology will begin serialization on Rinko Ueda's (Tail of the Moon, Stepping on Roses) Sakura Jūyūshi romance manga on August 4.
The manga revolves around the Sakura household, which has since ancient times worked as sake brewers. One day the daughter of the household finds a katana in her family's warehouse and when she unsheathes it, the sword starts to shine. The title Sakura Jūyūshi is a play on words of Sanada Jūyūshi, a story of the group of 10 ninja who assisted the warlord Sanada Yukimura during the Warring States era of Japan.
