Fruits Basket's Takaya to Start Liselotte & Witch's Forest

Fantasy is Natsuki Takaya's 2nd manga since Fruits Basket ended in 2006

This year's 10th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Fruits Basket creator Natsuki Takaya will launch a manga series called Liselotte and Witch's Forest (Liselotte to Majo no Mori) in the 12th issue on May 20. The "fantasy of love and courage" centers around Liselotte — a girl who, until now, has lived a different life from others on the very easternmost tip of a country. Takaya will draw the front cover of Hana to Yume's 12th issue as well as a color opening page for the new manga's first 52-page chapter.

Takaya is best known for her 1998-2006 Fruits Basket manga which Tokyopop first published in North America in 2004. Director Akitaro Daichi and Studio Deen adapted the story into a 2001 television anime series which Funimation began releasing in North America the following year. After Takaya ended Fruits Basket in 2006, she drew Hoshi wa Utau (Twinkle Stars Like Singing A Song) from 2007 until this year.
