New manga centers on boy who fantasizes about heroically saving girl student
The November issue of Shogakukan‘s Ciao magazine revealed last Friday that manga creator Chitose Yagami is planning to launch a new manga on Shogakukan‘s Ciao Comi manga website this month. Yagami also posted on Twitter on Friday that the manga will launch on October 15. The manga is titled Shōjo Manga no Hero ni Naritai no ni Heroine Atsukai Sareru Ore (I Want to Become the Hero of a Shōjo Manga But I’m Treated Like the Heroine). Yagami stated this is their first serialized manga with a young male protagonist.
The manga will center on a boy named Sora Fujigaya, who fantasizes about heroically saving Hoshikawa, a girl student of Sumeragi Girls’ Academy whom Sora often sees on the morning train to school.
Yagami launched her Ore-sama Kingdom (Kings of My Love, seen right) manga in the main Ciao magazine in 2009, and ended it in June 2014. The 12th and final compiled book volume shipped in July 2014. The manga inspired two anime specials.
Yagami launched a sequel titled Ore-sama Kingdom DX in Shogakukan‘s Ciao DX magazine in March 2020.
Yagami also launched another new manga titled Dekiai Royale in Shogakukan‘s Ciao magazine in March 2020.
Viz Media published the two volumes of Yagami’s Fall in love like a comic! manga in North America in 2007 and 2008.
