Ichiro Heian!

Ichiro Heian! 
(Have a Nice Trip)

By Jin Kobayashi

Well there were rumors that Jin Kobayashi's next Manga was going to be Honkawa Action! as seen in this teaser image below.

But it seems it's not the case. 

From ANN

The May issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Saturday that manga creator Jin Kobayashi (School Rumble, Natsu no Arashi!) is launching a new series called Ichiro Heian! (Have a Safe Trip!) in the next issue on May 9. According to the advertising, the story will have "black-haired girl x bicycle = long distance romantic comedy!"

Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine had indicated in February of 2010 that Kobayashi was planning a new series in that magazine. Kobayashi ended his Natsu no Arashi! science-fiction romance manga in Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker magazine last September. He ended the School Rumble Z spinoff manga Kodansha's Magazine Special in May of 2009, after finishing the original School Rumble manga in August of 2008.

 So it's another romantic comedy, this time it's about a long distance romance and girl that is biking. Seems interesting, though knowing Jin Kobayashi his style of artwork is his trademark will look similar to School Rumble characters.
