posted on
Shimura currently publishing 3 other manga series

Manga creator Takako Shimura will end her Wagamama Chie-chan (Selfish Chie-chan) in the March issue of Enterbrain's Comic Beam magazine on Thursday. Shimura launched the series last year.

Shimura is currently serializing Musume no Iede in Shueisha's Miracle Jump, Koiiji (Love Appetite) in Kodansha's Kiss magazine, and the continuation to the Awajima Hyakkei on Ohta Publishing's PocoPoco website. She published a two-chapter continuation of her "Okite Saisho ni Suru Koto wa" boys-love one-shot in December and January.

A total of eight volumes penned by Shimura are set to publish over the next six months. The second volume of Musume no Iede goes on sale on February 19, followed by the first volume of Koiiji on March 13, the only compiled volume of Wagamama Chie-chan on March 25, the first volume of Awajima Hyakkei on April 14, new editions of Dōnika Naru Hibi (two volumes) on April 14, Okite Saisho ni Suru Koto wa on May 23, and an artbook in June.

Shimura ended her Wandering Son (Hōrō Musuko) and her yuri manga Aoi Hana (Sweet Blue Flowers) manga in 2013.

Fantagraphics is releasing the Wandering Son manga in North America, and the company published the seventh hardcover volume on July 31.

The manga inspired an 11-episode television anime series from AIC that aired on Fuji TV's late night Noitamina programming block in 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Sweet Blue Flowers also inspired an 11-episode anime series that Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan. Right Stuf licensed the series in 2012 and released it on DVD.

The magazine will also include the final chapters of Masakazu Suzuki and Jirō Akagawa's Nezumi, - Edo o Hashiru and Garon Tsuchiya and Haruki Izumi's Valkyrie manga. It will also announce Ebine Yamaji will start a new series titled Red Thimble in the April issue on March 12.
