This year's sixth issue of Shodensha's Feel Young magazine announced on Monday that Tomoko Yamashita will begin a new series titled Ikoku Nikki (Diary of a Different Country) in the magazine's seventh issue on June 8.
The text accompanying the preview reads:
You responded to my voice. You are in a different country, even though you're right beside me. That voice, that warmth, that life - For my sake, let's write them together.
JManga previously licensed and released Yamashita's Don't Cry Girl and Mo'some Sting manga in North America, and SuBLime licensed and released Yamashita's The Night Beyond the Tricorner Window (Sankaku Mado no Sotogawa wa Yoru) manga. Don't Cry Girl was nominated for the 2011 Manga Taisho awards.
