The story of the drama club written by Sasaki and Miyano will return in January 2022
The September issue of Ichijinsha in Monthly Comic Zero-Sum revealed on Wednesday that the author’s manga Sho Harusono is butai ni Sake! (Blossom on Stage!) The manga will be on hiatus for six months. The manga will return in the March 2022 issue on January 28, 2022.
The story centers on Asahi Oniwa, a new high school student who sees the performance of an older drama club student named Imari, and immediately gets into acting. He signed up for the drama club, thinking that it would be a catalyst for his transformation, but unexpectedly only a month after signing up, he was able to debut on the stage due to a lack of actors.
Harusono launched the manga in Monthly Comic Zero-Sum in April 2020. Ichijinsha published the manga’s second compiled book volume on Monday.
Harusono previously launched the Sasaki and Miyano manga on the pixiv website in 2016. Kadokawa published the manga’s seventh volume in November 2020. The manga inspired a novel by Kotoko Hachijō. Yen Press licensed the manga. The original manga spawned the Hirano to Kagiura spin-off manga about two supporting characters who appeared in Monthly Comic Gene. That spinoff manga in turn inspired its own novel.
Both authors Sasaki and Miyano have anime adaptations to premiere in 2022.
