Boys Over Flowers' Kamio to Launch Tora to Ōkami Manga
The February issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine has confirmed on Wednesday that Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango) creator Yoko Kamio is launching her new Tora to Ōkami manga series in the next issue on February 13. The story follows Mii Torisawa, the daughter of a family that has run the Himawari restaurant for five decades. Torisawa deals with two handsome boys who happen to be frequent customers — the sweet-hearted "Tora" ("Tiger") or Toraji Sengoku, and the fierce "Ōkami" ("Wolf") or Ken Ōkami.
Kamio already drew a 60-page, one-shot Tora to Ōkami manga story in the December issue of Bessatsu Margaret in November. Since the main Boys Over Flowers manga ended in 2004, Kamio drew two Boys Over Flowers side stories in 2006 and 2007. She also drew her Cat Street manga in Bessatsu Margaret from 2004 to 2007 and her Matsuri Special manga in Jump Square magazine from 2007 until last year.
Viz Media released Kamio's Boys Over Flowers romance manga and its television anime adaptation in North America.
