Hashikko Ensemble: New Shimoku Kio Manga?!

I totally missed the memo back in November. Quoting from the ANN news post:

[…] January issue of Kodansha‘s Afternoon magazine announced three new manga series and a long one-shot manga […]

[…] Genshiken‘s Shimoku Kio will launch a manga tentatively titled Hashikko Ensemble in the April issue on February 24. The story takes place at a technical high school. The protagonist, who has a voice complex, is approached by a classmate who wants to start a choir club.

Shimoku Kio is my favorite mangaka; I have read all of his manga and own all the Genshiken manga that has so far been published in English. Somehow I missed this though. Fortunately, an even bigger Shimoku Kio fan, Carl of Ogiue Maniax, brought the news to my attention. Thank you!

I hope it’s good!
