This year's 13th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine announced on Friday that Kengo Hanazawa's new series is launching in the 16th issue on July 27. The series (pictured bottom right in image below) still does not yet have a title but the magazine describes it as a "'girl's' story," and the tagline reads, "I don't yet know 'men.'"

The magazine also announced that it will publish a one-shot titled "Tempest" (pictured center left in image above) by Inio Asano (Goodnight Punpun, Solanin) in the 18th issue on August 24. The magazine will also launch Akira Takemoto and Hiroto Yokoyama's Boku wa Kimi o Futorasetai! manga (pictured top right) in the 14th issue on June 22, Katsunori Hara's Harastration (top center) in the 15th issue on July 13, An Nishino's Tatakau Graphic (top left) in the 17th issue on August 10, and Hiroki ☆ Takasu's tentatively titled Tokyo Shinryaku JK Seijin no Bōsō (bottom left) in the 19th issue on September 14.

Big Comic Superior first announced Hanazawa's new series with the same tagline November. Hanazawa is also scheduled to launch a manga tentatively titled Under Ninja in Kodansha's Young Magazine on July 23.

Hanazawa launched the I am a Hero manga in Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine in 2009, and ended the series last year with 22 volumes. The manga inspired two spinoff series. A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan in April 2016. Dark Horse Comics is releasing the manga in North America.
