posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 18th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine will announce on Thursday that Ayumi Komura will launch a new series in the magazine's 22nd issue, which Shueisha will publish on October 20.
Komura is also ending her Full Dozer series with the 17th chapter in the 18th issue on Thursday.
Komura's Full Dozer manga centers on Ryōma, a third-year middle school student who has a crush on his childhood friend Mao. Mao is the type of girl who, when she decides on something, she moves forward in a straight line like a bulldozer. Mao develops a crush on a popular new actor named Hayato, and she chases him to Tokyo. Ryōma follows Mao and decides to enter show business.
Komura launched the manga in December, and Shueisha published the second volume (pictured at left) on July 24. Shueisha will publish the third compiled volume on October 23.
Viz Media published Komura's Mixed Vegetables manga in print and digital forms in North America. The American Library Association's Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) division listed the first Mixed Vegetables volume among the "great graphic novels for teens" published in 2009.
