Himouto! Umaruchan G sequel manga ended on Thursday

This year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine revealed on Thursday that manga creator Sankaku Head is preparing a new manga, and will reveal more information at a later date.

Sankaku Head ended the Himouto! Umaru-chan G manga in the same issue. The manga's one compiled book volume is slated to ship on June 19. The series launched in Weekly Young Jump last November as a sequel to Sankaku Head's earlier Himouto! Umaru-chan manga.

Sankaku Head launched the original Himouto! Umaru-chan manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two-chapter Himouto! Umaru-chan! version in Miracle Jump in 2012), and ended it last November. Shueisha shipped the manga's 12th and final compiled book volume (seen right) last December. The manga had 3 million copies in print as of September. Seven Seas has licensed the manga, and it will release the manga's first volume in May.

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series in July 2015. Himouto! Umaru-chan R, the second anime season based on the manga, premiered in Japan last October.

The manga also inspired the Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan, Himouto! Umaru-chan S, and Himouto! Umaru-chan SS spinoff manga. Himouto! Umaru-chan SS ended in February 2017, and Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan ended in September 2017.
