The March issue of Hakusensha's LaLa magazine announced on Saturday that Tomo Matsumoto will launch a new manga called Bōzu Love!! in the next issue on February 24. The romantic comedy centers on a blue-collar worker staying for free at a Buddhist temple, where monks (bōzu) live the ascetic life and women are prohibited. However, the temple and its chief priest both conceal a secret.
Matsumoto ended her last manga, the Beauty Honey high school romance, in the same LaLa magazine in October. Viz Media published Matsumoto's Beauty is the Beast manga in North America between 2005 and 2006.
