Viz Media announced on Monday that it will publish the previously announced new one-shot by Naoshi Komi. The one-shot manga titled "e no Genten" (The Origin of e) is about eSports, and Shueisha will publish the manga in Japanese in the sixth issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in Japan on January 4. Viz Media will publish the one-shot in English in its next issue on January 8.

The one-shot is part of a series of one-shots by well-known manga creators that Weekly Shonen Jump is publishing to commemorate the magazine's 50th anniversary in 2018.

Komi ended Nisekoi - False Love in August 2016 and then published a one-shot manga titled "Tokidoki" that October. Viz's Shonen Jump published both Nisekoi and "Tokidoki" in English. Viz Media published the 24th volume of Nisekoi on November 7.

Nisekoi inspired two television anime seasons. The anime's first season premiered in Japan in January 2014 with 20 episodes, while the 12-episode second season premiered in Japan in April 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the first series, and Aniplex streamed the second series on the Aniplex Channel, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Daisuki services. Aniplex released both on Blu-ray Disc.
