DeNA's Manga Box app published a one-shot on Wednesday by Seishi Kishimoto titled "Yobigami." The one-shot is based on a manga that appears in the second episode of the Oh! My Boss! Koi wa Bessatsu de (Love is a Supplement) live-action television series. The one-shot is credited to Kishimoto as "Ukyō Arazome," a character in the show (played by Natsuki Hanae) who is the manga creator of "Yobigami." The live-action series premiered on January 12.
The end of the one-shot also announced that Kishimoto will launch a new manga titled Monster no Isha (Monster Doctor) later this year. The announcement stated the new shonen manga will expand on the worldview of "Yobigami" and will tell a story about the bonds been boys and monsters.
Kishimoto previously drew the Mad Chimera World manga in 2017-2018, the Sukedachi Nine (Assist Nine) manga from 2014-2016, the action fantasy manga Kurenai no Ōkami to Ashikase no Hitsuji (The Crimson Wolf and the Trapped Sheep) in 2011-2013, and the fighting manga Blazer Drive in 2008-2010. He serialized his adventure series O-Parts Hunter (666 Satan) in Shonen Gangan from 2001 until 2007, and Viz Media published all 19 volumes of the manga between 2006 and 2009.
