This year's June issue of Shonengahosha's Monthly Young King Ours GH magazine announced on Monday that Q-taro Hanamizawa will start a new manga titled Kanojo ga Bikini Armor ni Kigaetara (If She Changes Into Bikini Armor) in next month's issue on May 16. The July issue will feature the manga on its front cover, and the first chapter will include an opening color page.
The official Twitter account for the magazine posted a preview image for the new manga from the June issue on Monday. The new manga is pictured at right in the image below.
The love story's tagline reads, "There's a secret about my wife!?," and the magazine teases a story about what a wife does while her husband is away.
Anime studio SHAFT produced a 10-episode television anime of Hanamizawa's previous series REC in 2006. In 2011, Hanamizawa's Hanamizawa Q-taro Jisenshū Hana-Hiyori erotic short story collection was on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's list of manga titles that would be restricted under Tokyo's revised Youth Healthy Development Ordinance, which expanded the number of manga and anime that must not be sold or rented to people under the age of 18. The manga was ultimately not formally restricted.
