Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced that Medaka Box artist Akira Akatsuki will publish a one-shot manga in Shueisha's Jump Next! magazine. The one-shot, titled Toshokan Kyūseishu Kurabu (Library Saviour Club), will be published in the magazine's winter issue, which is scheduled to ship in Japan on December 28. The 48-page one-shot will have a color opening page.
NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki's Medaka Box manga launched in 2009, and Shueisha published the 22nd and final volume in September. The story inspired two television anime seasons, and Crunchyroll streamed both seasons into several countries as they aired. Sentai Filmworks also licensed both seasons in North America.
