This year's April issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine announced on February 27 that manga creators Coolkyoushinja and Yasu are launching on a new manga series titled Diotima Manual: Kamisama-tachi no Ren'ai Daikō (Agent of the Gods' Love) in the next issue on March 27. Coolkyoushinja is credited with the original premise and Yasu is credited with the manga itself. The slapstick romantic comedy centers on a sullen main character and a naïve young lady. Yasu posted a visual from the new manga (pictured at right) on Twitter on February 27.
Coolkyoushinja's four-panel manga Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying) inspired two television anime in 2014 and 2015, both of which streamed on Crunchyroll as they aired in Japan. Coolkyoushinja's Komori-san wa Kotowarenai! (Komori-san Can't Decline) manga also inspired an anime in 2015 that streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed his Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid manga, which inspired a television anime that is currently airing in Japan. Crunchyroll is streaming the series with English subtitles as it airs, and Funimation is releasing a broadcast dub.
Yasu illustrated Yuyuko Takemiya's Toradora! romantic comedy light novel series, and also provided the original character designs for Kagari Tamaoka's Mangirl! manga. Toradora! and Mangirl! received television anime adaptations in 2008 and 2013, respectively. Yasu also drew the art for Kōji Kumeta's Joshiraku comedy manga, which also received a television anime adaptation in 2012.
