The official blog for ASCII Media Works' quarterly magazine Dengeki Daioh Genesis announced on June 22 that Toradora! author Yuyuko Takemiya and manga artist Akira Kasukabe (Persona 4 Degenki Comic Anthology, Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut - Hakanakikoku no Rion) will launch a new manga series titled Evergreen. The manga will appear in the magazine's 2011 Summer issue, which will go on sale on July 19.
The website noted that Evergreen is a nostalgic summer countryside story.
The magazine's official Twitter account also posted four rough character sketches for the upcoming title. The images show Hotaka, the protagonist; Niki, a heroine who is a beautiful blonde wild girl (pictured right); Yutaka, a cute girl who might be the next head of the manga club; and Soga, a dejected ikemen (handsome male) who is Hotaka's friend and a member of the manga club.
