The March 2015 issue of Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret shojo manga magazine is announcing that Io Sakisaka will be launching a new manga in the magazine’s July 2015 issue, which will be published in Japan on June 13, 2015. Shueisha will publish an illustration collection for Sakisaka on May 25, 2015, which is the same day that the 13th volume of her Blue Spring Ride (Ao Haru Ride) manga ships in Japan. The collection will feature art from two of her manga series: Blue Spring Ride and Strobe Edge.
Sakisaka serialized Strobe Edge in Bessatsu Margaret from 2007 to 2009. VIZ Media published he 10th and final volume of this series in North America in May 2014. Strobe Edge has also inspired a live-action film that stars Sota Fukushi and Kasumi Arimura; the film opens in Japan on March 14, 2015.
Sakisaka is ending Blue Spring Ride in the March 2015 issue of Bessatsu Margaret. This manga inspired a television anime series that aired in 2014, as well as a live-action film that was released in Japan in December 2014. Crunchyroll simulcast the Blue Spring Ride anime as it aired in Japan.
