In the most recent issue of the magazine Monthly Shonen Magazine it was reported that the author Akira hiramoto will start a new manga in the magazine in March 2022. Although the manga has no title yet, it is described as “a traditional romantic comedy“. It should be noted that Hiramoto’s most recent manga, RaW Hero, ended in August 2020.
Hiramoto began publishing this latest manga in the magazine Monthly Evening from the publisher Kodansha in September 2018. In the words of the fans, this manga was apparently canceled after a bad reception from the critics, which would explain the anticlimactic end that was given to this work.
Still, Hiramoto is perhaps best known for being the author of the manga. Prison School, published in the magazine Young Magazine from the publisher Kodansha between February 2011 and December 2017. This work is both loved and hated by fans, especially loved by those who only watched the anime adaptation. In the words of the fans: «This manga is the perfect example of what happens when the author runs out of ideas and starts experimenting with useless plot twists, destroying character development and the entire story in the process. I was disappointed, the ending is very clumsy and feels forced».
Synopsis of Prison School
Hachimitsu Private Academy, an elite girls-only institute, opens its grand doors to male students for the first time in its history. However, the five boys who enroll are a merry gang of perverts unable to communicate with the girls. This group of misfits is made up of the foreign criminal Shingo, the strange and sickly “Jo”, the obese “Andrei”, the intelligent “Gakuto” and Kiyoshi, the most normal of the group. Feeling disturbed by their lack of female interaction, the five boys embark on a dangerous mission to spy on several girls as they bathe.
However, due to a series of setbacks, their operation ends up failing, exposing the boys’ actions to the entire school. For their crimes, the boys are sentenced to one month in prison by the menacing Underground Student Council. What the relentless beauties on the council don’t know is that the boys’ wicked and unusual antics will only get worse.
