Ao-chan Can't Study! Manga Ends, Sequel Manga Begins in January
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January 2019 issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge published the last chapter of Ren Kawahara's Ao-chan Can't Study! (Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) manga on Monday. Kawahara will launch a sequel manga in the magazine's next issue on January 17 that centers on a "slightly more grown-up" Ao-chan.
When Ao was in kindergarten, she smiled ear-to-ear as she told her classmates how her father (a bestselling erotic author) chose her name: “A as in apple and O as in orgy!” That day still haunts her ten years later as she studies with a single goal in mind: get into an elite university and achieve independence from her father once and for all. She has no youth to misspend and no time to think about boys … until her classmate, “King Normie” Kijima, approaches her with a shocking confession of love. She tries to lose Kijima, but he just can't take a hint … and as her mind runs wild with impure thoughts, she realizes her father has totally influenced her!
Kawahara launched the manga in Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge in October 2015. Kodansha published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on September 14. Kodansha Comics released the second volume digitally in English on November 27, and has scheduled the third volume for December 25. The manga is inspiring an upcoming television anime by Keisuke Inoue (episode director for Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Masamune-kun's Revenge, Two Car) and SILVER LINK.
