Sankarea's Mitsuru Hattori Launches New Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
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.
