The November 2018 issue of Shonengahosha’s Young King Bull magazine has announced that Naoki Serizawa will begin serializing a new story for the Saru Lock manga titled Saru Lock Reboot. The manga will debut in the magazine’s next issue on October 4, 2018.
The story follows Yatarō “Saru” Sarumaru, an ordinary high school boy who daydreams about idols but otherwise has no luck with girls. However, this silver-haired son of a locksmith also happens to be a lockpicking genius, and there is no lock that “Saru” (which means, “monkey”) cannot open.
Serizawa began the original Saru Lock action comedy manga in 2003 and Kodansha published the 22nd and final compiled volume in 2009.
