From Boys Love to Young Men

Yoneda Kou, the gritty and erotic mangaka behind Twittering Birds Never Fly and NightS, has jumped into seinen manga with her new series, Op: Yoake Itaru no Iro no Nai Hibi. The title of her manga translates as Op: The Colourless Days of Yoake Itaru and follows the story of Yoake Itaru, a divorced investigator for an insurance company who solves cases other tend to avoid.

Shosen bookstore is holding fair to celebrate the release of Yoneda Kou’s first seinen manga series. Fans can see copies of pages from manga along with an exclusive color illustration they could win after purchasing the manga’s first volume.

Thanks to Shosen, Manga Planet had the opportunity to visit the fair and take photos! Like and share to celebrate Yoneda Kou’s seinen manga debut!  

Op: The Colourless Days of Yoake Itaru
Even though Yoneda Kou is well known for her BL manga and doujinshi, don’t be mistaken. Op: The Colourless Days of Yoake Itaru is *technically* a seinen manga. But, will this stop fans from reading it with BL glasses?

Though it might be a little hard to see, the cover exclaims that the manga is a combo of a boy x new sensation mysteries x insurance investigator.
