VIZ Media has announced a new manga series from Matsuri Hino, Shuriken and Pleats, that is set to arrive on March 1st.
SHURIKEN AND PLEATS, the story of a schoolgirl who’s also a ninja in modern-day Japan, is the latest title from Hino, who created the pivotal shojo series, VAMPIRE KNIGHT (also published by VIZ Media; rated ‘T+’ for Teens).
When the master she has sworn to protect is killed, Mikage Kirio, a skilled ninja, travels to Japan to start a new, peaceful life for herself. But as soon as she arrives, she finds herself fighting to protect the life of Mahito Wakashimatsu, a man who is under attack by a band of ninja. From that time on, Mikage is drawn deeper into the machinations of his powerful family.
Matsuri Hino’s is also the creative mind behind Captive Hearts and Merupuri, for those of you who are fans of her work.
Shuriken and Pleats has a $9.99 cover price (higher in Canada of course), and will arrive on March 1st in print and digital formats. The plan, according to VIZ Media, is to release new volumes twice a year.
