Missions of Love's Toyama Starts Imōto no o Shigoto wa Jikyū 2000-en Manga

Story of unfortunate girl who becomes fake little sister debuted on September 17

Ema Toyama launched the Imōto no o Shigoto wa Jikyū 2000-en (My Little Sister's Hourly Pay Is 2000 Yen) manga in the November issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Family magazine on September 17.

The "fake family" four-panel manga centers on a high school girl named Mieko. Lured by high salary, Mieko puts herself forward for a mysterious "little sister" job. Mieko's parents ran away at night when Mieko was in elementary school. She has lived with relatives ever since, but money usually runs out. However, Mieko is also worried about being left behind by her friends and the latest trends. This questionable "little sister" job becomes Mieko's lifeline.

Toyama posted a panel from the new series on Sunday.

Toyama launched her Aoba-kun ni Kikitai koto (I Have Something to Ask Aoba-kun) manga in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine last November after ending her Pocha-Pocha Suieibu (Pocha-Pocha Swimming Club) manga in February 2015.

North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics publishes Toyama's award-winning Missions of Love (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) manga in English. Kodansha Comics also released her Manga Dogs, I Am Here!, and Shugo Chara-chan! manga. Tokyopop previously published Toyama's Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho manga.
