posted on by Egan Loo
Mayu Shinjo, the manga creator of Sensual Phrase (Kaikan Phrase) and Love Celeb, announced in a Tuesday blog entry that she will reveal her new manga next month. She gave a hint on its title with a photograph of a heart diamond (haato no daiya). She is also recruiting new assistant artists.
An advance copy of Shueisha's Ribon magazine's August issue reportedly reveals that the new manga will be a romance that will debut in the next issue in August. The August issue will officially ship on Friday.
After a much-publicized exit from Shogakukan's Shoujo Comic magazine in 2007, Shinjo has been drawing her Ai-Ore! Danshikō no Hime to Joshikō no Ōji manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Asuka magazine and working on various Gundam side projects. She also added two new chapters to her Ayakashi no Koi Emaki (The Ghost Love Story Picture Scroll) manga in Shueisha's Margaret magazine in January. Viz Media published Sensual Phrase in North America.
