posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The August issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine revealed on Monday that manga creator Bow Ditama is launching a new manga in the magazine titled Shōgakusei wa Mama demo Ii desu ka? (Is it Alright if the Grade School Student is my Mother?). The manga centers on a man having love problems at work, when a girl appears before him who turns out to be his reincarnated mother.
Ditama's Kiss×sis manga received an OAV adaptation that shipped with volumes of the manga beginning from its third volume in 2008, and ending with its 12th installment in the 14th volume in 2015. The manga also inspired a television anime in 2010. The manga launched in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine in 2004, and Kodansha published the manga's 18th compiled book volume on May 2.
Ditama ended the Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!! manga in 2013. The series inspired a television anime series in 2009, which Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan. North American distributor Media Blasters released the series on DVD in 2013, and again last October on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
Ditama previously drew the art for Bunjuro Nakayama's Mahoromatic manga.
