Sensual Phrase's Shinjo to Start Manga Short Story
posted on by Egan Loo
Mayu Shinjo, the manga creator of Sensual Phrase (Kaikan Phrase) and Love Celeb, will start a two-installment manga called Ayakashi Koi Emaki (The Ghost Love Story Picture Scroll) in this year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine on July 19. The announcement was made on Saturday in the current issue. The heroine is Miiko, a girl training to be a miko (shrine maiden). The story begins one day when she performs an exorcism on a chō-ikemen (super handsome male).
Margaret's next issue will run the first 60 of the story's 121 pages, and it will be Shinjo's first appearance in the magazine. She has recently done work in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret and Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Asuka magazines. Last month, Shinjo wrote a much-publicized account of why she left Shogakukan's Shoujo Comic magazine last year.
