posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Shueisha's Ribon shōjo magazine has revealed that Momoko Sakura will draw a one-shot for her Chibi Maruko-chan manga in the magazine's November issue on sale on October 3. The heartwarming "Maruko, Matsutake wo Hoshigaru" (Maruko, Wanting Matsutake Mushrooms) chapter will be 21 pages long with a color opening.
The original manga inspired the Chibi Maruko-chan television anime that is consistently the #2 rated anime series after Sazae-san. The first anime series ran from 1990 to 1992, and the ongoing second series premiered in 1995. The 1,000th television anime episode aired last year.
Update: Only the opening page will be in color.
