Digital Manga announced that they have acquired Kaoru Tada's Itazura na Kiss. Currently, Itazura na Kiss is scheduled to hit Digital Manga's online store in November.

Itazura na Kiss was first published in the October 1991 issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine. The title was never finished, due to Tada's death in 1999. However, the series was immensely popular. Itazura na Kiss spawned three drama series (two aired in Taiwan, one in Japan), a stage play, and a 2007 animated series. Shoujo manga creators such as Wataru Yoshizumi (Marmalade Boy, Ultra Maniac) and Natsuki Takaya (Fruits Basket) have cited the title as an influence on their work.
