Enjoying the most talked-about anime of the 2023 Spring season? Here’s some news for you! If you like manga, you should keep an eye out for a new release. Aka Akasaka, creator of Oshi no Ko and Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, is working on a new series. The new manga will be available this month and aims to entice readers with yet another adorable journey.
The revelation comes from Shueisha, who also revealed the first photograph of Renai Daikou. Akasaka will write the next manga, with artwork by Nishizawa 5mm. Renai Daikou, the next manga series, will premiere on April 27th in Weekly Young Jump.

We know very little about the new series at this point, but we have been given a sneak peek. As shown above, the artwork of the manga’s heroine has been unveiled, and it is really lovely. The girl has long honey-blonde hair with bangs and wears a monochromatic suit. This enigmatic heroine is incredibly cute in a choker and hair clip, and she appears to have a hand puppet. The yellow thing looks to be some kind of fox, so we’ll have to wait and see what it’s all about.
Fans have their theories on what Renai Daikou may be about. The manga’s Japanese title translates approximately to Love Deputy in English. Akasaka appears to be working on another romantic comedy, which we welcome! The writer has a specialty, and we are delighted to accept all of their work!
Of all, this new comic is only one of several by Akasaka. They debuted in 2011 with Sayonara Piano Sonata, but Akasaka’s major break came in 2015. Kaguya-sama: Love Is War was a hit from the start, winning the 65th Shogakukan Manga Award before winding up in 2022. Akasaka is now working on the manga Oshi no Ko alongside illustrator Mengo Yokoyari. Renai Daikou is soon to be added to the list!
No worries if you want to brush up on Akasaka’s work before this new title comes out! Because Oshi no Ko‘s anime just debuted, this is an excellent moment to become acquainted with their work. Oshi no Ko Episode 1 is now available on HIDVE in the United States, and you can catch up on the Kaguya-sama anime on Crunchyroll!
