The manga will be a collaboration to coincide with the Inazuma Eleven GO movie coming to theaters on December 23, 2011.
She mentions “Akane-chan” will be the main character for January 2012’s Ciao (Shogakukan). (I assume Yamana Akane, the one who takes pictures)

She’s shared some lovely sketches on her blog, so check ’em out~ They are reference drawings she sent to LEVEL-5. She also writes that the offer to do this manga came up last summer. While unsure whether she was suitable to do the manga, her chief editor reassured her that she was the only one they could imagine for the project.
