Via Comic Natalie: Chica Umino’s “March Comes In Like A Lion” will be collaborating with instant noodle brand “Sapporo Ichiban” for a set of special collaboration items to be sold nationwide from mid-January. The artist herself will be illustrating characters Rei Kiriyama, Akari Kawamoto, Hinata Kawamoto, Momo Kawamoto and many others for the limited edition packaging of the “Sapporo Ichiban” ramen series.
“March Comes In Like A Lion” follows the story of 17-year-old pro shōgi player, Rei Kiriyama. Rei lives by himself since his parents and younger sister died in an accident, and is also estranged from his foster family. He has very few friends, three of whom are sisters Akari, Hinata, and Momo Kawamoto. Rei deals with his development as a player and as a person, while nurturing his relationships with the three sisters.
