Kare First Love's Miyasaka Launches Akai Ito Shōjo Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Shōjo romance manga creator Kaho Miyasaka (Kare First Love, Bokutachi wa Shitteshimatta) launched a new series called Akai Ito (Red Thread) in the October issue of Shogakukan's Cheese! magazine on Friday. A special 40-page preview, titled Akai Ito: Innocent Scene, already appeared in the magazine's September issue on July 24.
The story centers around a girl who serves as her school's sword-fighting kendō team manger. She is feared by those around her for her strict attitude, even though she is completely devoted to her team. She has feelings for the boys around her — but one is a polar opposite of her, another thinks of her as his little sister, and still another kissed someone in front of her. And then there are the aces on the other schools' teams.
Miyasaka's last manga, Bokutachi wa Shitteshimatta, began in 2007 and ran for 13 volumes before ending this past spring. Viz Media published Miyasaka's Kare First Love series in North America.
