Yu Yagami, the manga creator of Those Who Hunt Elves, is launching a new comedy series called Kankyō Hogo-Tai Mottai-9 (Evironmental Protection Team Mottai-Nine) in the online magazine Flex Comic Next.
The story centers around Ryōta Yonekura, a young man whose motto was "Don't be wasteful." While touring an environmental organization, he comes across the base of a mysterious group called the Kankyō Hogo-Tai Mottai 9.
