posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Shueisha's Cocohana magazine revealed on Saturday that manga creator Wataru Yoshizumi will launch a new manga series titled Caramel Cinnamon Popcorn (preview image seen right) in the magazine's December issue on October 28. The manga will have a color opening page and will feature on the issue's front cover.
The manga centers on a woman named Kanna, who works at a movie studio's marketing department. While enjoying her work in the company of high-profile actors, she meets someone.
Yoshizumi's most recent series was Marmalade Boy Little, a sequel to her original Marmalade Boy manga. The sequel series launched in Cocohana in March 2013, and ended in September 2018. Shueisha published the manga's seventh and final compiled book volume last November.
Yoshizumi published the original Marmalade Boy manga in Shueisha's Ribon magazine from 1992-1995. The North American publisher Tokyopop released the classic romance manga and its 1994-1995 anime adaptation in English. Discotek Media picked up the license for the anime, and released it on Blu-ray Disc in September 2018.
In addition to the television anime adaptation, the manga inspired a 1995 anime film, a 2001 live-action Taiwanese television series, and a live-action film in April 2018.
