posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 50th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine confirmed on Thursday that Kōichirō Hoshino is launching a new manga collaboration titled Suiyō Dō Desho (How Do You Like Wednesday?) in the magazine's first 2020 issue on December 5. The manga is a collaboration with the variety show of the same name.
The official Twitter account for the magazine previously announced the manga and previewed two images on October 10.
How Do You Like Wednesday? premiered in 1996 and is notable for being one of the first variety programs set in Hokkaido. The show is credited for launching Yo Oizumi's acting career, possibly known best to anime fans as the voice of Professor Hershel Layton in the puzzle game series and No-Face in Miyazaki's Spirited Away film. The show originally ran from 1996 to 2002, and now airs specials irregularly.
