Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai Novels Get Manga in 7 Mags
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The September issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine has revealed that seven Shueisha magazines will publish either one-shot or serialized manga adaptations of Tomohiro Matsu's Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! (Listen to me, girls. I am your father!) light novel series. The special publications will celebrate the recently announced anime adaptation of the series.
The manga adaptations will run in the following magazines:
- September issue of Jump Square
- Summer issue of Jump Square 19
- Weekly Young Jump this fall
- September issue of Ultra Jump
- October issue of Cookie
- November issue of Cobalt
Another serialized manga adaptation will run in Shueisha's new manga magazine from its Super Dash Bunko editors this fall.
The "slapstick at-home romantic comedy" revolves around Yūta Segawa, a 19-year-old college freshman who suddenly discovers that he must be the father of three girls.
Segawa had just gotten into college and settled into his first semester with new friends, but the plane that his older sister and her husband were riding went missing. As a result, Segawa has to watch over the middle school girl Sora, the fifth-grader Miu, and the kindergartener Hina in his tiny 3-meter-by-4-meter (9-foot-by-12-foot) apartment.
Matsu also created the Mayoi Neko Overrun light novel series and oversaw the scripts for its anime adaptation, and he wrote for the Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin anime. Matsu has written seven Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! light novel volumes since 2009, and Yuka Nakajima illustrates them.
