This year's 13th issue of Shueisha's You magazine has announced on Monday that Kozueko Morimoto's Gokusen high school comedy manga will return in the next two issues, which will ship on July 1 and 15. Morimoto had ended the manga in 2007 after seven years, but she is revisiting the story to mark the July 11 opening of Gokusen the Movie. The movie will serve as the theatrical finale to the three live-action television drama series based on the manga. The upcoming two-part manga side story will center on Kumiko "Yankumi" Yamaguchi — the high school teacher with yakuza ties — and her student Shin Sawada.
Media Blasters released the television animated version of the Gokusen manga in North America from 2004 to 2005. Morimoto has been serializing a new detective manga called Deka Wanko in You magazine since last year.
