Frog Ultra Cool: Keroro Robo's Epic Climactic Battle) in the next issue on October 26. Mine Yoshizaki is credited with the original work, and BANDAI SPIRITS is credited with collaboration. The manga commemorates the 20th anniversary of Mine Yoshizaki's Sgt. Frog manga in 2019.
The original manga is ongoing in Monthly Shōnen Ace, and Kadokawa published the 29th volume on May 26.
Sgt. Keroro, commanding officer of Planet Keron's invasion force, has a problem. After blowing his cover and losing his top-secret weapon, the frog-like alien has been cut off from the home world. To make matters worse, he's lost communications with the rest of his platoon. Now he has taken cover in the Hinata family household, where in exchange for doing his share of the chores, he gets his own room from which to secretly devise new plans of world domination!
