New Yamazaki Mari no Sekai no Kosodate! manga runs in kodomoe magazine

The December issue of Hakusensha's kodomoe magazine began serializing Thermae Romae author Mari Yamazaki's new manga about raising children on Saturday.

The one-panel Yamazaki Mari no Sekai no Kosodate! (Mari Yamazaki's Raising Children Worldwide!) manga depicts the experiences of mothers raising children in today's society in different places around the world. The first chapter introduces readers to childcare in Hawaii.

Yamazaki began drawing a manga biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 2013. Yamazaki launched the series in Kodansha's Kiss magazine, and it now runs in the Hatsu Kiss magazine.

Yamazaki ended her historical comedy manga Thermae Romae in March 2013. The manga inspired a television anime mini-series, and two live-action films starring Hiroshi Abe and Aya Ueto in April 2012 and April 2014. Yen Press published the six-volume manga in North America in three omnibus volumes, while Discotek released the anime in North America.

Thermae Romae won the Manga Taisho (Cartoon Grand Prize) award in 2010, followed by the Short Work Prize in the 14th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prizes.
