The fifth volume of Shueisha's Jump Kai magazine announced on Thursday that Chihiro Tamaki (Walkin' Butterfly, Fool on the Rock) and Masaya Tsunamoto (Giant Killing) will launch a series in the magazine's sixth issue, due out on December 10. The high school baseball manga is titled Ball Meets Girl.

Aurora Publishing published the four-volume Walkin' Butterfly manga (pictured at right) in North America. Walkin' Butterfly was adapted into a live-action television drama series in 2008.

Tsunamoto wrote the story to the Giant Killing soccer manga, which received a television anime adaptation in 2010. Crunchyroll simulcast the series outside Japan as it aired.

The fifth volume of Jump Kai also began serialization on Takuma Morishige's (Aihoshi Modoki, Tonari no Seki-kun) Iinari Gohan gourmet essay manga.
