I can't wait for it.

Genuinely don't know how the story is gonna turn out. The first chapter was a pretty good drama with a weird supernatural twist towards the end. I don't know how I feel about that. I'd personally want it to expand upon the topics it has laid down in the first chapter rather than becoming a gag comedy. Very ambiguous since one author is the writer of a very famous comedy while the other is the author of a heavy drama.

Alright so this will be added to MyAnimeList in 2-3 years since it takes so damn long for manga to be approved.


AniList has it already ....
but MAL is so slow sometimes

I can't wait to see Aka present his endless latent, which has been buried away until now his editor.

Although Prez and Ishigami do go through unlimited suffering works, if you've read the manga...

A collab from one of the greatest romcom manga/anime of all time and arguably one of the shittiest shitshow in a my opinion.

Well I guess tis will be in the middle.


Nah. Scum's wish's art is good and that's all that matters since Aka's doing the story. Between instant bullet and Kaguya-sama, he hasn't let me down so far and I love his storytelling, so bets are it'll be pretty great.


oh then it'll be a great combo then, I never really liked the way how kuzu no hentai went but from the looked of the manga, the art is precise and overall good.

true, it's a rather odd combination, so the result should be quite interesting
If they mix Kaguya-Sama with Kuzu no Honkai by adding a little bit of rape I'll be the happiest person in the world.

Okay stop trolling now dude

Wow... Kuzu no Honkai was so unmemorable, the whole time I thought it's about Honkai Impact game... Maybe I'll give it a shot but that promotional art and WSJ doesn't bode well.
Thankfully, Kuzu's artist isn't taking part in writing the story hehe

Aka, buddy.. for the love of god, stop whatever the fuck you're doing and start writing that Instant Bullet reboot you promised, I'm still stumped by the fact that it got axed in the first place, like.. some serious shit taste must be involved for that to even happen.


Apparently the feeling he had when he started IB has changed since then and that he might not come back to it, but if he does it will be drastically different than the one you know.

I hope you like long wait.
