The manga is tentatively titled Henshūsha Kenzaki Ryūnosuke (The Editor Ryūnosuke Kenzaki), and it will follow a protagonist who is an editor for Weekly Shōnen Magazine, and a heroine who is a manga creator. The rookie editor meets a rookie manga artist who says "I want to be a manga creator. Take responsibility please!"
The manga will launch in the 29th issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine on June 20.
Crunchyroll released the manga's chapters digitally simultaneously with their release in Japan. Kodansha Comics is also releasing the series' volumes digitally, and the 17th volume launched on March 20.
Seo ended his 27-volume Kimi no Iru Machi (A Town Where You Live) manga on the same day he launched Fuuka. The manga inspired a television anime adaptation from GONZO in 2014 as well as four original video anime volumes.
Seo's 18-volume Suzuka manga ran from 2004-2007. Del Rey released part of the series in print, and then Kodansha Comics released the full series digitally. A television anime adaptation aired in 2005, and Funimation released the series on DVD.
