The seventh issue of Shueisha's Jump Kai magazine is announcing on Tuesday that manga creator est em (Age Called Blue, Red Blinds the Foolish, Seduce Me After the Show) is launching a new series called IPPO. The manga, which will run every other month, follows a maker of individually crafted shoes after he returns home from a trip to Florence, Italy. One day, a surprise visitor comes to his studio.
Jump Kai's official Twitter account previously noted that est em will contribute to the January 27 issue of the Super Jump spinoff magazine Girls Jump, which features an all-female creator lineup.
Deux Press published Red Blinds the Foolish and Seduce Me After the Show in North America, while Netcomics published Age Called Blue. The creator launched the Golondrina manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine in June. The manga's story is set in Spain and revolves around a matador.
