Ohikoshi (which translates into 'moving' in English'), a new manga mini series by Hiroaki Samura, is currently being published in Japan by Kodansha. Ohikoshi, a romantic comedy, may surprise fans of Samura who is best known for his grim and violent Samurai Saga Blade of the Immortal, currently published in the US by Dark Horse comics. The second part was just released in Kodansha's Afternoon Autumn seasonal special, three more parts are expected to be released quaterly, the next one probably in Afternoon Winter.

This is the second new manga series Samura has done while still completing Blade Of The Immortal. The first ran last year and centered around a shojo manga artist who marries into the Yakuza.
