posted on by Kevin Yuan
This year's eighth issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine announced on Thursday that Eiji Masuda's romantic comedy manga Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I Am…) will end in four more chapters. If normal serialization continues without a break, the series will end in the magazine's 12th issue on February 16.
The current issue also revealed that three new manga will launch in the magazine over the next several weeks. Eiji Mutsui's Saue to Rap ~Jiyūgata~ (Saue and Rap: Freestyle) series will launch in the ninth issue on January 26 with Japanese rap artist Cypress Ueno as rap supervisor. Ryūta Suzuki's NINNIN— manga will launch in the magazine's 10th issue on February 2, and Kazuhiro Urata's Jinba manga will launch in the 11th issue on February 9. Urata's My Grandpa's Stories Can't Be This Weird! series ran on DeNA's Manga Box app from December 2013 to November 2014.
Masuda launched Jitsu wa Watashi wa in the magazine in 2013. Akita Shoten published the manga's 20th compiled book volume on December 8, and will ship the 21st compiled volume on February 8. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English under the title My Monster Secret. The company published the fifth compiled volume on January 10th, and it describes the series:
High school student Kuromine Asahi is the kind of guy who literally cannot tell a lie. Whether it's trying to maintain a poker face in a simple game of cards, or keeping scurrilous gossip to himself, Asahi is a total failure when it comes to the art of deception.
So what happens when he stumbles upon the most shocking secret of his life? When Asahi learns that Shiragami Youko, a beautiful girl of few words, is actually a vampire. Can Asahi possibly keep his lips sealed?
A television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in Japan in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The manga also received a stage play adaptation that ran in Tokyo's Shinjukumura Live theater last May.
