This year's 13th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed on Wednesday that Sōichirō Yamamoto is launching a new manga titled Sore Demo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru (Even So, Ayumu Approaches) in the magazine's next issue on March 6. Yamamoto posted a visual for the manga on his Twitter account.
Yamamoto launched the Teasing Master Takagi-san manga in Gessan mini, the accompanying booklet to Shogakukan's Gessan (Monthly Shonen Sunday) magazine, in 2013. After Yamamoto finished serializing his Fudatsuki no Kyōko-chan manga in Gessan in June 2016, Teasing Master Takagi-san moved to Gessan in July 2016.
The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in January 2018, which also adapted Yamamoto's Ashita wa Doyōbi manga as segments within the show. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed the series with an English dub. The anime will have a second season.
Shogakukan published the manga's 10th compiled book volume on February 12. As of February 2018, the series has more than 4 million copies in digital sales and in print copies. Yen Press is releasing the manga in English.
Yamamoto is also drawing the ongoing Kunoichi Tsubaki no Mune no Uchi (Inside Tsubaki Kunoichi's Heart) manga, which launched in Gessan in January 2018. Shogakukan published the manga's second volume on February 12.
