The new manga will launch in the ninth issue of Weekly Shōnen Champion's digital supplement magazine Champion Buzz on June 6.

The manga centers on Jack, a middle-aged freight company employee, who suddenly becomes the key to defeating the demon king, when he is told that he is blessed with the strength of a legendary swordsman. He then decides to become an invincible swordsman as a side job.

Hoshino's Hachigatsu no Cinderella Nine S manga recently ended with its fifth compiled book volume last August. The manga is based on Akatsuki and Kadokawa's Hachigatsu no Cinderella Nine smartphone game, with an all-new story.

Seven Seas published Hoshino's two-volume manga adaptation of Keishi Ayasato's Mythical Beast Investigator. (Genjū Chōsain) novel series.
