The first chapter will feature 32 pages and an opening color page. The 48th issue teases the title as Koi to ____ (Love and ____) featuring a woman saying "I will become ___!" Weekly Big Comic Spirits stated this is Nishi's final new manga in the Heisei era (Japan will enter a new era on May 1, 2019 after the current emperor abdicates on April 30).
JManga published two volumes of Nishi's four-volume series Kyudo Boys, about the romantic relationships of a group of high school boys, digitally in English before the the site ended service. She launched her Hatsukoi no Sekai (World of First Love) manga in Monthly Flowers in January 2016. Shogakukan published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on May 10.
Nishi's Otoko no Isshō (A Man's Lifetime) manga received a live-action film adaptation that opened in 2015. Her Otō-san, Chibi ga Inakunarimashita (Father, Chibi is Gone) manga is inspiring a live-action film that will open in Japan in spring 2019.
