Her slice-of-life school yuri manga series has printed more than 1.5 million copies
It has been confirmed that Ichijinsha will release 30-year-old manga artist Namori's yet-titled second art collection book in Japan on August 2, 2018, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary for her long-running yuri comedy series Yuruyuri.
The series was first serialized in the publisher's Comic Yuri Hime S magazine from its 5th to 14th issue. After the magazine ended its publication in September 2010, it has been serialized in Comic Yuri Hime since its January 2011 issue. It has released 16 tankobon volumes so far, and its estimated total print run is about 1.5 million copies.
According to the listing on Japanese online stores, the 4,298-yen (about 39 US dollars) book will feature her newly-drawn illustrations and will be like an art exhibition that readers can enjoy alongside the members of the Amusement Club. More details will be revealed at a later date.
