New manga from Umaru-chan creator centers on "introverts, maid cafes"

This year's 47th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine revealed on Thursday that manga creator Sankaku Head's previously revealed new manga is titled Maid in Hikkomuse, and the manga will launch in the magazine on November 8. The magazine hints that the manga will center on themes of "introverts" and "maid cafes." Sankaku Head posted images for the new manga on Thursday. The Weekly Young Jump staff also launched a Twitter account for the manga.

Sankaku Head recently ended the Himōto! Umaru-chan G manga on April 19. The manga's one compiled book volume shipped on June 19. The series launched in Weekly Young Jump last November as a sequel to Sankaku Head's earlier Himouto! Umaruchan manga.

Sankaku Head launched the original Himouto! Umaruchan manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two-chapter Himouto! Umaruchan! version in Miracle Jump in 2012), and ended it last November. Shueisha shipped the manga's 12th and final compiled book volume last December. Seven Seas is releasing the manga in English.

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video.

Himouto! Umaru-chan R, the second anime season based on the manga, premiered in Japan last October. Sentai Filmworks licensed the sequel and streamed it on Amazon's Anime Strike service in the United States.

The manga also inspired the Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan, Himōto! Umaru-chan S, and Himōto! Umaru-chan SS spinoff manga. Himōto! Umaru-chan SS ended in February 2017, and Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan ended in September 2017.
