Story about former day care worker launched on July 9

This year's 32nd issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine launched manga creator Sayori Ochiai's (Gingitsune) new series Hoiku no Ō-sama (Day Care King) on July 9. Horo Ishiyama collaborated with the original plan of the series. The first chapter included 58 pages and an opening color page.

The story follows Iku Fukuda, who likes working with kids, so he gets a job at a day care center. When he realizes there's a gap between his expectations and reality, he quits after 2 months. But Fukuda doesn't give up on his love of working with kids.

Ochiai launched the Gingitsune manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in 2009, and Shueisha published the 12th compiled volume in June.

The series inspired a television anime adaptation titled Gingitsune: Messenger Fox of the Gods that premiered in October 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series in North America and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in March.
