Manga about manga creator debuted in May 2020
The manga debuted in May 2020. Shueisha published the manga’s first compiled book volume on February 25. The story is about the work and love life of Shōko Kanbara, a manga creator “on the edge” and in her 40s.
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 in September 2019.
