Shogakukan revealed the title and a visual for the upcoming new series in Masaharu Noritsuke's Afro Tanaka manga franchise on Monday. The new manga is titled Kekkon Afro Tanaka (Marriage Afro Tanaka). The manga will debut in the combined 21st and 22nd issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine on April 23.
The manga series centers around the quirky life of an Afro-haired young man named Hiroshi Tanaka.
The new manga will be the sixth installment in Noritsuke's Afro Tanaka manga series that has been running since 2002. The gag manga underwent several title changes as it followed Tanaka through every stage of his life: Kōkō Afro Tanaka (High School Afro Tanaka), Chūtai Afro Tanaka (Dropout Afro Tanaka), Jōkyō Afro Tanaka (Tokyo-Bound Afro Tanaka), Sasurai Afro Tanaka (Wandering Afro Tanaka), and Shiawase Afro Tanaka (Happy Afro Tanaka). Shiawase Afro Tanaka ended on March 19. Shogakukan will publish the manga's 10th volume on April 23.
The Jōkyō Afro Tanaka story received a live-action film adaptation in 2012.
