The manga recently embarked on a one-month hiatus, a brief respite carefully chosen by the creators to recharge before launching into the climactic phase of the story. Eager readers can mark their calendars for the manga’s resumption, set for the 40th issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Young Magazine on September 4.

Originating in May 2017 within the pages of Weekly Young Magazine, the creative duo, Yamakawa and Asaki, has weaved a compelling narrative.

The 21st volume’s release on June 6 marked another milestone. Notably, the manga transitioned into hiatus following the conclusion of its second part in October 2021, only to re-emerge with the highly anticipated third and final installment in June 2022. This concluding arc propels the storyline seven years beyond the conclusion of the second part.

Kodansha USA Publishing acquired the licensing rights for English-speaking audiences, initiating digital releases on February 28. The heart of the narrative revolves around a salaryman leading an ostensibly content life alongside his dependable wife and university-going daughter, who occasionally displays a streak of rebellion.

However, the status quo shatters when the protagonist uncovers his daughter’s ordeal of physical abuse. This revelation propels him into a treacherous world, triggering a perilous journey to shield his family.

As fate would have it, an anime adaptation of the manga made its debut on April 2, broadcasted on Tokyo MX and BS TV. Crunchyroll, in step with the anime’s airing, commenced streaming with both subtitles and an English dub starting from April 16.

Furthermore, Masashi Asaki’s artistic prowess is not confined to “My Home Hero”; his contributions extend to Yuma Ando’s “Psychometrer” and “Psychometrer Eiji” manga, as well as the “IWGP: Denshi no Hoshi” manga within the Ikebukuro West Gate Park franchise.

Yamakawa, in collaboration with Akinari Nao, gave life to “I’m Standing on a Million Lives,” a manga that sparked a television anime adaptation premiering in October 2020. The anime’s subsequent season graced screens in July 2021. Kodansha USA undertakes the English publication of this compelling work.
