posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Amazon Japan's listing for the October issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine is listing that the magazine will launch a new manga by Ema Toyama in the December issue, which will ship in early November. The October issue will officially ship on September 3.
The October issue of Nakayoshi will also publish a one-shot by Toyama titled "Jimi Kon" (Plain Marriage, pictured at right). The magazine describes the one-shot's story as centering on a girl who vowed to marry her very plain childhood friend — now a math teacher — once she turned 16, but realizes that her friend has completely changed his attitude.
Toyama launched her award-winning Missions of Love (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) romantic comedy manga in Nakayoshi magazine in 2009 and ended it in June 2015. She launched a sequel manga titled Watashi ni xx Shinasai! Couple-hen (Missions of Love - Couple Arc) in Nakayoshi on March 2, and ended it on June 1. Kodansha Comics publishes the original manga in North America.
A live-action television series adaptation premiered on MBS on March 25 and TBS on March 27 with four episodes, while a live-action film opened in Japan on June 23.
Kodansha Comics also released Toyama's Manga Dogs, I Am Here!, and Shugo Chara-chan! manga. Tokyopop previously published Toyama's Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho manga.
