On Monday, Asuka Konishi’s X (formerly Twitter) account made an exciting announcement: “Yakuza Fiancé: Raise wa Tanin ga Ii” manga is set to receive a television anime adaptation.
The manga is currently licensed by Seven Seas, and its fifth compiled volume in English is scheduled for release on October 24. Described by Seven Seas as follows:
“Yoshino grew up as the yakuza princess of the Osaka Somei crime family, earning a wide berth from those who feared her piercing gaze and mob connections.

However, a significant shift occurs when her grandfather strikes a truce with the Miyama crime family in Tokyo. In a surprising twist, she is offered in betrothal to the grandson of the Miyama family’s leader, Kirishima. Initially, Kirishima appears amicable and well-mannered, but as he unveils his darker side, he proves to be more unsettling than any gangster Yoshino has ever encountered.
This engagement is bound to be a tumultuous journey for a resilient yakuza princess and her enigmatic yakuza prince.”
The series was launched by Konishi in Afternoon in 2017, and as of October 23, Kodansha has released the eighth compiled volume of the manga.
Notably, the manga received the grand prize in the fourth Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards in 2018.
Additionally, Konishi is the talented creator behind “Haru’s Curse,” which secured second place in the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2017 guidebook list for female readers. Kodansha Comics is responsible for releasing the English version of this manga.
