Kodansha Comics announced on Thursday that it will release three new digital-first manga in September.

Title: Peach Girl NEXT
Author: Miwa Ueda
Debuts on September 4
Story Summary: It's been ten long years since their legendary love swept the field like a hurricane. At 27 years old, Momo, Kairi, Toji, and Sae are back! Momo and Kairi are at the peak of their relationship, but still not married?! The pressure is on! Sae can't stand to see this couple happy, and she won't stand for it! Touji also seems to already have a shadow hanging in his past after becoming an adult … What happened? Get ready for this love train to move full-steam ahead once again!

Kodansha Comics had announced in July that it would release the Peach Girl manga digitally. The company released the first eight volumes on Tuesday, and will release volumes 9-18 on September 11.

Tokyopop published both the original manga and the Peach Girl: Sae's Story spinoff in North America, but split the original manga into two separate series: Peach Girl and Peach Girl: Change of Heart. Ueda launched the ongoing Peach Girl Next sequel manga series in Kodansha's Be-Love magazine in August 2016.

The original manga inspired a live-action drama in Taiwan in 2001 and a Japanese television anime in 2005. Funimation released the anime adaptation. A live-action Japanese film opened in May 2017.
