Magazine Announces New Marmalade Boy Manga
By Joseph Luster
Wataru Yoshizumi's Marmalade Boy originally made its debut in shoujo magazine Ribon in 1992, where it ran until 1995, ultimately filling up eight volumes. Tokyopop released the series in North America, but in Japan, a new chapter is about to begin.
Marmalade Boy Little is set 13 years after the end of Marmalade Boy, and focuses on the younger brother and sister of original series leads Miki Koishikawa and "marmalade boy" (sweet on the outside, bitter on the inside) Yuu Matsuura. The sequel is set to kick off in this year's fifth issue of Cocohana, which goes on sale in Japan on March 28.
