posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 24th issue of Kodansha's Be-Love magazine launched Natsumi Ando's new manga series Watashi wa Dōka Shiteiru (There's Something Wrong With Us) on December 1. Be-Love describes the series as a "wagashi (traditional Japanese treats) x fate" suspense story. The first chapter featured a color opening page.
The manga centers on Nao and Tsubaki, who met when they were children when their mothers worked at a traditional Japanese confectionary shop. But due to a certain incident, they were separated. 15 years later, Nao and Tsubaki are each working at other Japanese confectionary stores, and are reunited.
Kodansha Comics has published Ando's Arisa, Let's Dance a Waltz (Waltz no Ojikan), and Kitchen Princess manga in North America. Tokyopop previously published Ando's Zodiac P.I. manga, and Del Rey published her Wild @ Heart manga. Del Rey had also previously published part of Arisa and Kitchen Princess.
