The June issue of Hakusensha's Bessatsu Hana to Yume magazine revealed on Thursday that Nanpei Yamada will end her Sakura no Hana to Kōcha Ōji (The Cherry Blossom and the Black Tea Prince) manga in the magazine's next issue on May 26. The manga will feature on the magazine's cover, and will also have a color opening page.
The manga centers on Yoshino, a girl who enacts a ritual to curse the arranged marriage partner that her father set her up with. However, something goes wrong, and instead she summons the "Black Tea Prince" Sakura. Sakura once served Yoshino's great-great-grandmother Yae.
Yamada launched the manga in Bessatsu Hana to Yume in 2013 as a new series of her original Kōcha Ōji manga. Hakusensha published the manga's 11th compiled book volume last November. The original Kōcha Ōji manga ran in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine from 1997 to 2004 and had 25 volumes.
Tokyopop previously published two volumes of Yamada's Skyblue Shore (Sorairo Kaigan) manga.

The manga launched in Bessatsu Hana to Yume in 2009. Hakusensha published the manga's ninth compiled book volume last September.
