New manga to center on 25-year-old woman who works at stationery shop

This year's November issue of Shueisha's Cocohana magazine revealed on Friday that Mitsuba Takanashi will launch a new manga titled Otome Tsubaki wa Warawanai (The Woman Tsubaki Doesn't Laugh) in the magazine's December issue on October 26. The manga will feature on the December issue's front cover, and the first chapter will have 50 pages and an opening color page.

The manga centers on Tsubaki Kanno, a 25-year-old straightforward woman who works at a stationery shop.

Takanashi launched the Sumika Sumire manga in August 2013Cocohana, and ended the series in its 11th volume, which shipped on June 25. The manga inspired an eight-episode live-action television adaptation that premiered in February 2016.

Takanashi ended her Crimson Hero manga in 2008, and Viz Media published the manga as one of the four launch titles in the Shojo Beat magazine in 2005 in North America. DC Comics' shuttered CMX Manga imprint also published Takanashi's The Devil Does Exist manga.
