Mangaka Takayuki Mizushina announced on Twitter on June 24 that he will launch a new manga titled Kiri Moya Biyori (Clear Skies for Kiri and Moya) in this year’s 16th issue of Kodansha’s Evening magazine on the 27th. The manga will focus on an illustrator named Hiyori, and her pet dog, Moya and Kiri.
Mizushina ended the Itoshi No Muco (Lovely Muco! or Lovely Muuuuuuuco!) manga last year. Mizushina launched the manga in Evening in 2011. Kodansha published the manga’s 17th and final volume last November.
The manga inspired the three-part Lovely Movie: Itoshi no Muco anime on Fuji TV. The first season ran for 21 episodes from July to December 2013, the second season ran for 22 episodes from April to October 2014, and the third season ran for 25 episodes from October 2015 to March 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the third season as it aired into Japan. Takenori Mihara directed the first two seasons at Douga Kubo.
