posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The December issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Wednesday that Ayuko Hatta will launch a new manga titled Ima, Koi o Shiteimasu (I am Now in Love) on December 13. The series' first chapter will be 50 pages long and include color opening pages.
The manga will center on the relationship between a scary and popular, but actually gentle high school boy, and a "life-size" high school girl. Satomi decides to try her best with love in high school. She is curious about the boy who saved her from a pervert, but she has trouble deciding if the boy is scary or kind.
Hatta recently ended her Haibara-kun wa Gokigen Naname (Haibara's in a Bad Mood) manga on April 12, and Shueisha published the manga's third and final compiled book volume on May 24. Hatta launched the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in May 2018.
Hatta launched her Wolf Girl & Black Prince manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2011, and ended it in May 2016. Shueisha published the manga's 16th and final compiled book volume in the same month. As of May 2016, the manga has 5.4 million copies in print.
The manga inspired a television anime in 2014, as well as a live-action film, which opened in Japan in May 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the series in North America in March 2016.
