Prince of Tennis "Tribute" Manga to Launch in November

The November issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine has announced on Saturday that Hōkago no Ōji-sama (The Prince of Afterschool), a new "tribute" manga based on Takeshi Konomi's The Prince of Tennis manga, will launch in the next issue on November 4. The next issue will also contain a poster for The Prince of Tennis, the launch of a new series of feature articles on The Prince of Tennis musical, and a giveaway for musical tickets. No other details besides the title will be announced for the manga until next month, but the previous issue of Jump Square had said that the project will be a "miraculous" collaboration with The Prince of Tennis musical. All the new material will help mark the one-year anniversary of the relatively young magazine.

Konomi ended the original manga for The Prince of Tennis after nine years this past March, but the stage musical continues all across Japan and is branching out into Taiwan and South Korea this month. Konomi has also been soliciting new assistant artists since early August. Viz Media will publish the 28th of the 42 manga volumes in North America next month.

Two other manga creators — artist Yōhei Takemura and story creator Aya Tsutsumi – will launch another manga called I-Revo -Ice Revolution- about a figure skater's first love in the next issue of Jump Square. Likewise, Naoshi Komi is drawing an unnamed one-shot manga after his first serialized manga, Double Arts, ended last month in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.

The December issue (released on November 4) of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine has confirmed that Dragon Drive manga and anime creator Ken-ichi Sakura is drawing Hōkago no Ōji-sama (The Prince of Afterschool), the four-panel "tribute" manga to Takeshi Konomi's The Prince of Tennis sports manga (pictured at right). In addition, Jump Square has confirmed that Takeshi Konomi will develop a new regular series for The Prince of Tennis starting in its April issue (on sale on March 4). Konomi ended the original manga series in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine last March after almost nine years and 379 installments.
