Is this guy basically an involuntary version of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in that movie Junior?

I don't know why I expected anything deeper than "mpreg is now real" and why I am disappointed

I’ve read some chapters of it and it’s actually a very thoughtful exploration of pregnancy and the discrimination and assumptions around pregnancy—although IIRC, the main character didn’t have a partner in the manga, he got knocked up from a one night stand (the biological changes aren’t specified, probably because the manga is focused on the social aspect of pregnancy, not the technical details) I’d love to see it officially licensed in English.

Finally! The Japanese adaptation of Junior I always wanted to see. I kid. I know its not an adaptation. Obviously, its only natural to think of Junior.
