The September issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine revealed on Friday that Ema Toyama will draw a one-shot manga titled "Jimi Kon" (Plain Marriage) in the magazine's next issue on September 3.

The magazine describes the manga's story as centering on a girl who vowed to marry her very plain childhood friend — now a math teacher — once she turned 16, but realizes that her friend has completely changed his attitude.

Toyama launched her award-winning Missions of Love (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) romantic comedy manga in Nakayoshi magazine in 2009 and ended it in June 2015. She launched a sequel manga titled Watashi ni xx Shinasai! Couple-hen (Missions of Love - Couple Arc) in Nakayoshi on March 2, and ended it on June 1. Kodansha Comics publishes the original manga in North America.

A live-action television series adaptation premiered on MBS on March 25 and TBS on March 27 with four episodes, while a live-action film opened in Japan on June 23.

Toyama launched her Aoba-kun's Confessions manga in November 2015, and ended it on June 1. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English.

Kodansha Comics also released Toyama's Manga Dogs, I Am Here!, and Shugo Chara-chan! manga. Tokyopop previously published Toyama's Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho manga.
