Hitorijime My Hero is a spinoff series of Arii's earlier Hitorijime Boyfriend manga, and it focuses on the high school teacher Kōsuke Ōshiba, and the incompetent delinquent Masahiro Setagawa. Both characters appeared in Hitorijime Boyfriend, and Kōsuke is the brother of the earlier manga's protagonist Kensuke.
Arii launched the spinoff series in Gateau in 2012. Ichijinsha will ship the manga's sixth volume in both a standard and a special edition on June 29. The manga has over 700,000 copies in print. Arii and Ichijinsha published Hitorijme Boyfriend in 2010, and JManga released the manga digitally in North America in 2012.
