The new U.S. manga publisher Star Fruit Books has announced Q-ta Minami’s Pop Life manga as its first license. Star Fruit Books is planning to release the first volume of the two-volume slice-of-life series digitally in English through its website in September 2020.
The manga’s story focuses on manga creator Sakura, her son Kaede who goes to a correspondence high school, event company employee Akemi, and Akemi’s elementary school children Taichi and Ruru. The two fatherless families live calm, free, and gentle lives while supporting each other.
Minami launched the series digitally in 2016.
Matt Haasch founded Star Fruit Books in Florida on May 26, 2020. The digital publisher’s releases will be available worldwide as .pdf and .cbz files.
