重野秀一 (Shuichi Shigeno), author of Initial D, is announcing the official start of his new manga series called「高嶺の花」"Takane no Hana" The new series will be published on Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine just like Initial D did for the past 18 years.

Die-hard Initial D fans will definitely remember, Shigeno-san concluded the Initial D manga in July 2013, putting the 18-year long-running series to an end. He hasn't done anything since then. So this announcement is him telling us that he's not retiring just yet. After all, he owe it to himself to take a well-deserved break after drawing Initial D all these years.

Anyways, what do we know about the new manga series by the great Shigeno-sensei? Well, the story centers on a middle-aged, divorced manga creator whose works just can't sell well. And one day, he meets a stunningly beautiful girl and his life begins to change.

Yes, it is a love story. And to top it off, it's a romance story between a middle-aged man (mid 40s) and a young girl (early 20s) Can this be a semi-autobiography of Shigeno-san himself? Perhaps a projection or some sort? We will have to wait 'til March 10th to find out in the 15th issue of Young Magazine. There will most likely be many manga translation group that will pick this up, we'll keep you posted for the English translation of this issue once it's out.

| Editor's Note |
The name of the new series「高嶺の花」literally translated as, "Flower on a high peak." It means, "something out of one's reach." Some things are beautiful to look at, but realistically, there is no way you can get them. It is something that you want very much but can't have it. It is a well-known proverb in Japan. It also symbolize "ambitious dream" or "unattainable goal."

Well, it didn't take long before Shigeno start making these kind of references to Initial D in this series...

Well, it probably is a vague (or accurate) representation of his own life or how he views himself. He certainly did allude a lot to actual real world drivers in initial D. Glad he hasn't retired from manga.

On the one hand, Shigeno needs to step out for a while. On the other, my cheesy romance fan side wants to watch this take its natural course... Hmm...

Sooner or later, the 86 will probably also make a cameo appearance again like one of his past works. Or has it been already shown..

Look how many months it took for anything remotely interesting to happen in this trash heap of a manga.

Can't be worse to other things I've found are boring (e.g. LoTR).
