Shiny New Releases: Shitsuji ni Kokkyou Nante

Igarashi Ran is releasing Shitsuji ni Kokkyou Nante (1) on 7/25, a shoujo comedy manga published in Comic Zero-Sum. It’s also the sequel to Ai ni Toshi no Sa Nante (briefly discussed in this post).

Munns (?) has come from afar to Japan to train to be a butler.  Awaiting him is the legendary butler Yagi, who loves his charge just a little too much, a mansion full of mysteries and traps, and more… Follow his harrowing journey to become a great butler.

Shitsuji ni Kokkyou Nante sounds like more along the lines of Igarashi Ran’s silly, hyper comedic style.  I’m excited to see more Yagi–his “devotion” is hilarious, but always kept in check by the sharp Itsuki (much to Yagi’s dismay).  Then of course there’s Kazusa, Itsuki’s friend and the girl who is madly in love with the older Yagi.  I hope they both get plenty of screen time.  We’ll see how well Munns integrates himself into that mess!

  1. Omg, I saw the series in Zero-Sum. It’s really funny, but the first chapter I have is… chapter 10, I think, so it’s kinda a pointless read,
    I’d say this manga is a bit unusual, even for Zero-Sum. And even though I enjoyed the two chapters that I have, I can’t quite decide what to make of it, I mean… what it’s aiming for, something like that.

    • Her stuff is hilarious, but yeah.. it struck me as an oddity in the Zero-Sum line-up. Hmm, an aim… I know what you mean and I’m not sure her stuff has one. It’s quite crack-tastic in nature. Ai ni Toshi no Sa Nante did (sorta) have a more specific overall plot than this one seems to have, but all bets are off when it comes to the direction of the story! I loved the very enthusiastic oyaji butler in the prequel, so I hope this youngin’ is just as good.
