This year's 43rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine has announced on Monday that Coharu Sakuraba's Kyo no Gononi ("Kyō no 5 no 2" or "Today in Class 5-2") manga will restart with a three-installment run. The new run will begin in the next issue on September 29. The "light ecchi" story centers around fifth grader Ryōta Satō, his childhood friend Chika Koizumi, and the rest of their school's CLASS 5-2. Tsuyoshi Nagasawa and Xebec's television anime adaptation will premiere on October 5. Another Kodansha magazine with a similar name, Bessatsu Young Magazine, serialized Kyo no Gononi's original 2002-2003 run.
Weekly Young Magazine is also publishing one installment of Bow Ditama's Kiss×sis manga about the "forbidden" love between a boy and two stepsisters. The Feel anime studio is adapting this story for an animation DVD that will be bundled with the third manga volume compilation on December 22. The manga series normally runs in Bessatsu Young Magazine.
