posted on by Kiara Valdez
The June issue of Hakusensha's LaLa magazine announced on Friday that manga creator Yuki Kure will publish a one-shot, titled "Ao Sora Sketch" (Blue Sky Sketch), in the magazine's next issue, which will ship on May 23. The manga will follow a girl named Shiomi who loves drawing and has an unrequited crush.
Kure created the manga of KOEI's first La Corda d'Oro dating simulation games. She ended the manga of the first game in 2011, and her adaptation of La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky ended in June 2014. Viz Media published the last of the 17 La Corda d'Oro manga volumes in North America in May 2013. Kure also drew Linden Hall no Aria -Kin-iro no Corda Series- (Linden Hall Aria: La Corda d'Oro Series), another manga that followed La Corda D'Oro 3's Kanade, in LaLa.
The anime adaptation of La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky premiered in April 2014 and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The game franchise also inspired a television anime series in 2006, and a sequel, La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~, aired in spring of 2009. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the first series on DVD in North America, and Crunchyroll streamed both anime.
