Manga artist Suzue Miuchi will relaunch her long-running Glass no Kamen (The Glass Mask) theatrical romance epic in Hakusensha's Bessatsu Hana to Yume magazine in its September issue (on sale on July 26). The manga had previously run in the main Hana to Yume magazine, but the 42nd and last compiled volume of the manga was published back in 2004. Bessatsu Hana to Yume's advertisement says that the story will pick up where volume 42 left off and will still feature the rising stage actress Maya Kitajima and her suitors Yū Sakurakōji and Masumi Hayami.
The manga first ran in 1976, and it inspired a 1984 television series and a 2005-2006 television remake. There was also a three-part video series that started in 1998.
