The March issue of Shinchosha's Comic@Bunch premiered a new manga series based on the classic novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes on January 21. The novel is being adapted by writer Yūshi Kawata and artist Yukito into a series titled Don Quixote -Ureigao no Kishi: Sono Ai-.
The original 1605-1615 novel followed Alonso Quijano, a man well-read in chivalry. He decides to revive the practice under the name Don Quixote with his sidekick, a farmer named Sancho Panza.
The book inspired two children's anime adaptations, Don Quijote and Zukkoke Knight - Don De La Mancha, as well as a graphic novel published by Variety Art Works and released in English by One Peace Books.
Kawata and Yukito previously worked together on the Mogitate Idol Ningen and Gakuen Kakumeiden Mitsurugi (School Revolution Legend Mitsurugi) manga.
