The LINE Manga app announced on Thursday that Haruichi will launch the Star Wars: Leia Ōjo no Shiren (Princess Test) manga on May 4 (Star Wars Day).
The story centers on 16-year-old Leia Organa as she faces a mandatory test in preparation for becoming queen of Alderaan. Leia is busy with her studies of various topics such as politics and martial arts. She falls in love with the intellectual and kindhearted fellow Alderaanian Kia, whom she meets at youth parliament. Meanwhile, Leia is fearful of the expansion of the Empire's tyrannical rule, and she learns the important secret of her parents.
Haruichi was an Excellent Rookie Award winner in the young division of the 70th Tetsuya Chiba Awards. Doctor Strange, Haruichi's debut work, ran from November 2016 to March 2017 in DeNA's free Manga Box app. Haruichi has also written manga related to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool works.
Yūsaku Komiyama (Avengers: Zombies Assemble, Ixion Saga) launched a manga adaptation of Claudia Gray's Lost Stars novel in 2017, and the third compiled book volume shipped on April 20. Yen Press licensed the series and released the first compiled book volume last May.
