'Tokyo Hell Heavens' is 1st of 3 new one-shot manga that could become a series

This year's 38th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine published a new one-shot manga on Wednesday by Miki Yoshikawa (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) titled "Tokyo Hell Heavens," a buddy working comedy about an angel and demon. Yoshikawa will also publish two more one-shot manga in the magazine's 41st issue on September 11 and in the 43rd issue on September 25. Fan voting will decide which of Yoshikawa's three one-shots will be her next series. This is part of a special project commemorating the 60th anniversary of Weekly Shōnen Magazine.

Yoshikawa's Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches manga series ended in February 2017, and the 28th and final compiled volume shipped in April 2017. Crunchyroll released manga chapters online overseas as they were published in Japan, and Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in print. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in April 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

Yoshikawa debuted with her Glory Days manga in 2003, and worked briefly as an assistant for Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail). She then published the original Yankee-kun to Megane-chan one-shot manga, before turning it into a full series. The manga inspired a live-action television series in 2010.
