Boku no Kanojo wa Yōjinbō follows aspiring samurai drama actress & dancer

Manga creator Rie Takada will launch her latest series Boku no Kanojo wa Yōjinbō (My Girlfriend is a Yojimbo/Bodyguard) in the October issue of Hakusensha's Silky magazine on September 3.

The romantic comedy follows two people pursuing their dreams in two different worlds of performing arts: a woman who longs to be in samurai-era period dramas, and her boyfriend who is an aspiring dancer.

Tokyopop published Takada's previous series Wild Act in North America. Viz Media published her Happy Hustle High Punch! series, as well as her one-voume manga Gaba Kawa. Her series Kitchen Palette - Komugi no Renai Fūmi Shugyō-jitate- also ran in Silky from 2009 to 2010, while she is still serializing Oshiri Ai -Shinsatsu-chū- in a spinoff of Shogakukan's Petit Comic magazine, Ane-kei Petit Comic.
