Honey & Clover’s Umino to Draw for Dreams Come True CD
Artist to illustrate “Tsuretette Tsuretette’s” cover, 16-page manga
Honey and Clover manga arist Chika Umino is drawing the cover and a 16-page manga booklet for the limited November 12 edition of the “Tsuretette Tsuretette” CD single by the Japanese pop music duo Dreams Come True. Dreams Come True members Masato Nakamura and Miwa Yoshida said that reading Honey and Clover invoked strong, heartrending memories of when they were in school. They asked Umino to draw a manga about a winter love story based on the title of their song. The limited edition CD package, which will only be available this winter, will also include a special “kira-kira” (sparkling) sticker and a link to a special website for mobile devices.
Umino is drawing the cover for a work by another creative colleague; her alternate cover for Kentarou Miura‘s Berserk fantasy manga volume 33 will ship next week in the next issue of Hakusensha‘s Young Animal magazine. She is currently drawing her March comes in like a lion manga in Young Animal.
