VIZ Media’s Shojo Beat imprint announced at its Otakon 2015 panel that it has licensed Keiko Ishihara’s The Heiress and the Chauffeur manga. The first volume will be available in May 2016.
The story takes place in the Taishō era, at a girl’s school where one young lady, Sayaka, earns the envy of all the other girls. She wears a red ribbon to mark her the top student at school. She is always followed by a chauffeur, an employee of her family. The rumor among the students is that the two are in love.
Ishihara began the manga in Hakusensha’s LaLa DX magazine in 2010.
