posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The June issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Zōkan magazine revealed on Friday that manga creator Seizou Watase will launch a new manga titled Natsuno no Kyō (Natsuno's Kyoto) in the magazine's August issue on July 17. The manga will have a color opening page.
The manga centers on Natsuno, a woman who has the ability to hear music from people. She aspired to be a violin luthier, but ended up succeeding her family's Kyoto tea shop when her mother passed away.
Watase's Heart Cocktail anthology story manga previously inspired a television anime series that aired from 1986 to 1988, as well as the Heart Cocktail Again 2003 OVA. His Chalk-Iro no People manga also inspired a 1988 OVA. He also drew the image design for Madhouse's 1985 Bobby's Girl film.
