Manga creator Yayoi Ogawa revealed on Wednesday that she will launch a new series in Kodansha's women's manga magazine Kiss next month. She then added that she just decided on the new work's title, which is composed of four kanji (Chinese-derived Japanese) characters. She noted that the new series has her first kanji title ever; all of her previous manga titles were composed of kana (phonetic Japanese) characters or English characters.
Tokyopop published Ogawa's Kimi wa Pet manga series under the title Tramps Like Us in North America. The romantic comedy follows a career woman who jokingly offers to take a homeless boy home as her pet, only to be surprised when the boy agrees. The story inspired a Japanese live-action television series in 2003 and a Korean live-action film in 2010. Ogawa's other manga titles include Baby Pop, Candy Life, Extra Heavy Syrup, and Kiss and Never Cry.
