This year's 46th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed on Wednesday that Reiji Miyajima (Rent-A-Girlfriend), Masakuni Igarashi (Senryū Girl), Kei Sasuga (Domestic Girlfriend), Yōsuke Kaneda (Boarding School Juliet), and Kouji Seo (Hitman) are all publishing one-shot manga themed around "isekai" (alternate/fantasy world) versions of their above manga.
