posted on by Egan Loo
The May issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine is announcing on Saturday that manga creator Jin Kobayashi (School Rumble, Natsu no Arashi!!) is launching a new series called Ichiro Heian! (Have a Safe Trip!) in the next issue on May 9. According to the advertising, the story will have "black-haired girl x bicycle = long distance romantic comedy!"
Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine had indicated in February of 2010 that Kobayashi was planning a new series in that magazine. Kobayashi ended his Natsu no Arashi! science-fiction romance manga in Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker magazine last September. He ended the School Rumble Z spinoff manga Kodansha's Magazine Special in May of 2009, after finishing the original School Rumble manga in August of 2008.
