Blooming Clover will have a color opening page, and will be featured on the magazine’s cover.
The new Sengoku Basara manga shares the same name as CAPCOM‘s name for its new Sengoku Basara game series, beginning with Sengoku Basara: Sanada Yukimura-Den (Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada). The new manga will focus on three different characters in the Sengoku Basara series, each based on a historical Japanese figure.
Motoki Yoshihara will draw the first arc, based on Date Masamune. Asagi Ōga will draw the second arc, based on Ishida Mitsunari. Yoshisada Tsutsumi will draw the third arc, based on Matsunaga Hisahide.
Yoshihara’s Sengoku Basara 4 manga ended in October 2015. Yoshihara also ended another manga based on Sengoku Basara 4 titled Sengoku Basara 4 – Bontenmaru-hen in August 2015.
Ōga previously worked on the Sengoku Basara 3 -Roar of Dragon- manga. Tsutsumi previously worked on the Tale of the Crescent Moon Dragon manga, which also centers on Date Masamune. JManga previously released the manga.
