Series following girl who meets underground-dweller, alien to begin in Ciao next month

The March issue of Shogakukan's Ciao shōjo magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Hiromu Shinozuka will begin a new series titled Puri Puri Chii-chan!! - Hajikeru Lovely Days in the magazine's April issue, which will be published in Japan on March 3.

The magazine lists that the story will revolve around a girl named Yūka who encounters a being from the depths of the Earth named Chii-chan (a pun of 'Chiteijin,' the Japanese word for underground-dweller), and an alien named Ucchan (a pun of 'uchūjin,' or 'alien'). The magazine also hints that the series will be a story with a "new kind of happy feeling" that will make readers burst into laughter.

Shinozuka's Chibi Devil! manga inspired an anime series in 2011. She ended the manga in the December issue of the Ciao shōjo magazine. Shogakukan will release 11th and final volume of the manga in February. Her Milmo de Pon! manga also inspired the 172-episode Mirmo Zibang anime series in 2002.
