Sankarea's Mitsuru Hattori Launches New Manga

Manga follows cheerful girl who runs a laundry service

This year's 13th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine announced on Friday that Mitsuru Hattori will launch a new manga series titled Kirei ni Shite Moraemasu ka. (Will You Clean This For Me?) in the 14th issue on July 7.

The manga takes place at a seaside town laundry shop called "Kinme Cleaning," where the proprietress Takana Kinme is a cheerful, hardworking girl who loves hot springs. The "bittersweet" story stars Kinme and the people around her.

Hattori published the zombie comedy manga Sankarea from 2009 to 2014, and it inspired a 2012 anime that Funimation released in North America. Kodansha Comics published the original manga in English. Hattori's earlier Kenko Zenrakei Suieibu Umisho manga also inspired a television anime.

Hattori more recently provided the art for the manga adaptation of NisiOisin's Imperfect Shojo novel. Vertical licensed the manga for North America.
