Gokusen's Morimoto to Launch New Romantic Comedy Manga
posted on by Egan Loo
The February issue of Shueisha's Monthly You magazine is announcing on Tuesday that manga creator Kozueko Morimoto (Gokusen) will launch the romantic comedy series Takadai-ke no Hitobito in the next issue on February 15. Morimoto already published a one-shot "Takadai-ke no Hitobito" manga (pictured right) in the December 2012 issue, to mark the magazine's first full year as a monthly publication.
The one-shot manga depicts the romance between a quiet, day-dreaming female employee named Hirano and Takadai, the handsome male upper-tier employee who just arrived from the New York branch. Despite having trouble talking with people, Hirano is suddenly invited to eat with Takadai for some reason. As it turns out, Takadai can read people's feelings.
The upcoming series version will follow the other strange members of the Takadai family. According to the magazine, a series is launching after readers showed their support for more stories.
Morimoto's Deka Wanko manga series also runs in Monthly You, although it has been on hiatus when the Takadai-ke no Hitobito manga runs. Her Ashi Girl series runs in Shueisha's Cocohana magazine, and Shueisha published its first compiled volume in July.
