posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Shueisha's Cookie magazine revealed on Thursday that Ryo Ikuemi will launch a new manga titled Rose Rosey Roseful Bud in the magazine's July issue on May 26. The magazine teased that the manga will be about the work and love life of Shōko Kanbara, a manga creator "on the edge" and in her 40s. The manga will have a 40-page opening chapter, include a color opening page, and feature 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 in 2013, and her Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo manga inspired a live-action television series in 2017. Ikuemi's Principal manga then inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in March 2018. JManga digitally distributed Ikuemi's Cousin manga in English before closing its doors.
Ikuemi launched the Eine Kleine Nachtmusik manga, based on the novel by Kōtarō Isaka, on Gentosha's Comic Boost manga website in January 2019. Ikuemi also launched a new manga titled 1-nichi 2-kai last September.
