The 15th compiled book volume (seen right) of Riko Miyagi's Mei-chan no Shitsuji DX manga revealed last Friday that the series will have a spinoff manga titlled Mei-chan no Shitsuji Mayonaka no Shitsuji-tachi (Mei-chan's Butler: Butlers of Midnight) that will launch in this year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine on November 20.
The original Mei-chan no Shitsuji manga follows Mei, a ordinary young country girl with vague dreams of a handsome stranger who helped her when she was lost as a child. Mei discovers that she inherited a vast fortune and has to enroll in an elite academy for young ladies of high standing. She meets Rihito, her strikingly handsome, effortlessly capable butler. Rihito happens to be the stranger from her dreams and the brother of Kento, a boy who has a crush on her.
Miyagi began the series in Margaret in 2006, and ended it in 2012 with 20 volumes. Miyagi then serialized the spin-off manga Mikado Boy in Margaret from 2013 to 2014. The Mei-chan no Shitsuji DX sequel manga launched in Margaret in September 2014. The series inspired a live-action drama series in 2009, as well as a stage play in 2011.
