posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine has announced that Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango) creator Yoko Kamio is launching the Ibara no Kanmuri (Crown of Thorns) manga in the magazine's May issue on April 13. The manga centers on a girl named Nobara who has a secret that she cannot tell a certain person.
Since the main Boys Over Flowers manga ended in 2004, Kamio drew two Boys Over Flowers side stories in 2006 and 2007. She also drew her Cat Street manga in Bessatsu Margaret from 2004 to 2007, her Matsuri Special manga in Jump Square magazine from 2007 until 2010, and the Tora to Ōkami series in Bessatsu Margaret from 2010 to 2011.
Boys Over Flowers has been adapted into a television anime series, a 1995 Japanese live-action film, and a more well-known 2005 Japanese television drama, which spawned a sequel and a hit film. The manga also inspired a live-action Taiwanese drama and a 2009 live-action South Korean drama. Viz Media released Kamio's Boys Over Flowers romance manga and its television anime adaptation in North America.
