This year's 26th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Kōji Ōishi's Lycopene the Tomatoy Poodle (Tomtatoipu no Rikopin) manga is ending its run in the magazine as of that issue. The manga will move to the Shonen Jump+ website and app and continue there starting in July.

Ōishi published a one-shot manga with the same title in December 2016, and then launched the series in Weekly Shonen Jump on October 7. Weekly Shonen Jump describes the manga:

There was a star different than our human planet called "Cuteopia."
In this planet where fancy, cute and mysterious animals live, a girl named Meh-meh gets lost one day.
There she meets a very cute toy poodle born from a tomato plant called "Lycopene" and...?!
Now, get ready for Jump's cutest tale ever to begin!

Shueisha published the first volume of the series on February 2, and will publish the second volume on June 4.

Viz Media published the first three chapters of the manga simultaneously in English as part of its "Jump Start" initiative.

Ōishi (Maison de Penguin) launched the Inumarudashi— gag manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2008, and ended it in June 2012. Shueisha published 11 compiled book volumes for the manga. Inumarudashi— inspired a Vomic (sequence of still frames from the manga with voices added) project and a Flash anime project.
