Ryo Ikuemi Launches New Ichi Nichi Ni Kai New Manga on September 28

Manga centers on two people who meet again for 'second turn at life'

The official website for Shueisha's Cocohana magazine revealed last Wednesday that Ryo Ikuemi is launching a new manga titled Ichi Nichi Ni Kai (Twice a Day) in the magazine's next issue on September 28. The magazine describes the manga's story as centering on two people around the age of 40 who meet again for their "second turn at life." The manga's first chapter will have 41 pages, including color opening pages, and it will also be showcased on the issue's front cover.

Ikuemi's Pops manga inspired an original video anime in 1993, her Kiyoku Yawaku manga inspired a live-action film adaptation in 2013, and her Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo manga inspired a live-action television series in 2017. Most recently, Ikuemi's Principal manga inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in March 2018. JManga digitally distributed Ikuemi's Cousin manga in English before also closing its doors.

Ikuemi most recently ended her Taiyō ga Miteiru (Kamoshirenai Kara) manga last May. She launched the series in Cookie in March 2014. Shueisha published the manga's eighth and final volume in July 2018.

Ikuemi recently launched a new manga titled Eine Kleine Nachtmusik on Gentosha's Comic Boost manga website in January, based on the novel by Kōtarō Isaka.
