Kare Kano's Masami Tsuda to Launch Hinoko Manga
posted on by Ko Ransom
The April issue of Hakusensha's Lala shōjo magazine announced on Friday that Kare Kano (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijō/His and Her Circumstances) author Masami Tsuda would be beginning a new series named Hinoko in its next issue. The "ancient fantasy" series will feature a girl with mysterious powers from the "legendary age of shrine maidens" whose meeting with a boy changes her life. The May issue of the magazine featuring the first, 52-page chapter on its cover will be released on March 24.
Tsuda's Chotto Edo Made historical comedy manga, which ran in the same magazine, ended its run with last year's August 24 issue after beginning in the magazine in 2008. Tsuda also created a one-shot Kare Kano manga for Lala's April 23 issue of last year.
The May issue of Lala will also feature a new 51-page one-shot manga from Ouran High School Host Club creator Bisco Hatori, "Detarame Mōsō-ryoku Opera" ("Nonsense Delusionary Opera"). The "closet spectacle comedy" will be about a character named Hifumi, who is called on by a former prince and NEET (Not in Employment, Education, or Training) Yokuto in order to perfect his opera skills.
