Here We Go Again…
It’s fair to say that the original Kissxsis manga and anime adaptation was made for a very particular audience. Namely the kind that enjoys incestuous fanservice bordering on hentai. It’s a niche demographic for sure, but it seemed to work given the fact the material still has a following.
However, it seems that creator Bow Ditama isn’t done with this kind of narrative just yet, as he is set to launch a brand new manga just before the new year. It seems he has decided to brush aside the sexual relationship between siblings in exchange for…a mother and son.
According to an article on Anime News Network –
This year’s January issue of Kodansha‘s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine announced on Saturday that Bow Ditama‘s Shōgakusei wa Mama demo Ii desu ka?(Is it Alright if the Grade School Student is my Mother?) manga will launch in the next issue on December 26.
The manga centers on a man having love problems at work, when a girl appears before him who turns out to be his reincarnated mother.
Ditama’s Kiss×sis manga received an OAV adaptation that shipped with volumes of the manga beginning from its third volume in 2008, and ending with its 12th installment in the 14th volume in 2015. The manga also inspired a television anime in 2010. The manga launched in Kodansha‘s Weekly Young Magazine in 2004, and Kodansha published the manga’s 18th compiled book volume on May 2.
Ditama ended the Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!! manga in 2013. The series inspired a television anime series in 2009, which Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan. North American distributor Media Blasters released the series on DVD in 2013, and again last October on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
Now to be fair, we don’t know if there is going to be any sort of forbidden love element to this new manga, but going by the author’s resume it’s still more likely than not. If it does happen, then it will be a double knockout since according to the synopsis the female character will be both underage and the protagonist’s mother all at the same time.
Make of that what you will.
