The May issue of Kadokawa's Comic Flapper magazine revealed on Thursday that Takuma Morishige will release another new chapter for his My Neighbor Seki (Tonari no Seki-kun) comedy manga in the magazine's June issue on May 2.

Morishige previously published another chapter for the manga last November, and another before that in March 2017.

The original manga revolves around a girl named Yokoi who sits next to a boy only known as “Seki-kun.” During class, Seki-kun continues to not pay attention and instead creates amazingly throrough little distractions, such as a detailed golf course with the course's hole being a dent in his desk, or an entire dramatic war being played out by paper shogi pieces.

Morishige began My Neighbor Seki in 2010, and Vertical Comics is publishing the manga in North America. The 10th and latest compiled volume shipped in Japan in March 2017 and Vertical's English-language release of the same volume shipped on January 23. The manga was nominated in the 5th Manga Taisho Awards in 2012.

The manga inspired an anime adaptation in 2014, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video. The manga also inspired a live-action show.
