Manga creator Akeji Fujimura revealed on April 10 that they will collaborate with manga creator Takeshi Nozawa to launch a new manga titled Aishitemasu, Kyōko-san (I Love You, Kyōko-san) in the fifth issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine the Third on May 7. The manga will have a color opening page. Fujimura is drawing the manga based on Nozawa's original work.

Sōya Mutō drew a short manga in the magazine's previous issue that previews some of the new series launching in the magazine, including Aishitemasu, Kyōko-san (in upper right panel in image below). The manga centers on a "twisted" relationship.

Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Fujimura published their As the Gods Will (Kami-sama no Iu Toori) manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2011 to 2012. They then launched a sequel series titled As the Gods Will: The Second Series (Kami-sama no Iu Toori Ni) in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2013. The manga ended in December 2016. Crunchyroll simultaneously published chapters online along with the Japanese release, and Kodansha Comics released all 21 compiled volumes digitally.

Kami-sama no Iu Toori inspired a live-action film directed by Takashi Miike in 2014.

Kaneshiro and Fujimura launched their new manga Gnoshros in Kodansha's Young Magazine in July 2017. Kodansha published the manga's fifth volume last October.
