Chocolate Underground's Yamakawa to Launch Stand Up! Manga
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The "small love story" revolves around a tall girl named Utako who is somewhat shy. Yamakawa already drew a one-shot Stand up! manga story in the February issue of Bessatsu Margaret in January.
Yamakawa's Chocolate Underground manga adaptation of Alex Shearer's Bootleg novel ran in Bessatsu Margaret from January-June 2008. Production I.G also produced a mobile phone anime adaptation of the novel that also played in Japanese theaters in January 2009. The satirical novel follows two English boys who create a bootleg chocolate factory after their country bans chocolate.
