Romantic comedy set in land where high school class sizes have fallen to single digits

Akita Shoten is launching its Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine on Tuesday with manga creator Morishige's latest series, Sakura Sakura. The "ultra-extreme declining-birthrate (kinda science-fiction?) romantic comedy" centers around Haru Hanasaki, a boy who is turning 15 in a country where the drop in childbirths reached critical levels. He is entering high school, where he will have a classmate for the first time in his entire life.

Morishige created the popular Hanaukyo Maid Team and Koi Koi Seven romantic comedy manga — both of which have been animated. I.C. Entertainment (Studio Ironcat) published the Hanaukyo Maid Team manga in North America, and Geneon Entertainment released the Hanaukyo Maid Team: La Verite television series. Enoki Films has been streaming the Koi Koi Seven anime on several services in North America.
