Story of middle-aged manga creator with weak sales & beautiful girl starts March 10

This year's 14th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is announcing on Monday that Initial D manga creator Shuuichi Shigeno is launching a new series called Amazing Hana (Takane no Hana) in the following issue on March 10.

The story follows a middle-aged, divorced manga creator who can't get his works to sell. One day, he meets a stunningly beautiful girl, and his life begins to change.

Shigeno ended his Initial D manga in the same magazine last July, and Tokyopop published the beginning of that manga in North America. The manga inspired several television anime series (including the Fifth Stage that ran in 2012), a live-action film, several original video anime projects, and a successful game line. The manga is inspiring a new trilogy of anime films starting August 23, and its final battles will also be adapted into a new anime series called Final Stage.
