The January 2019 issue of Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine Edge has published the last chapter of Ren Kawahara’s Ao-chan Can’t Study! (Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) manga. Kawahara will launch a sequel manga in the magazine’s next issue on January 17, 2019 that focuses on a “slightly more grown-up” Ao-chan.
The story of the manga is described as:
When Ao was in kindergarten, she smiled ear-to-ear as she told her classmates how her father (a bestselling erotic author) chose her name: “A as in apple and O as in orgy!” That day still haunts her 10 years later as she studies with a single goal in mind: get into an elite university and achieve independence from her father once and for all. She has no youth to misspend and no time to think about boys… until her classmate, “King Normie” Kijima, approaches her with a shocking confession of love. She tries to lose Kijima, but he just can’t take a hint… and as her mind runs wild with impure thoughts, she realizes her father has totally influenced her.
Kawahara launched Ao-chan Can’t Study! in Shonen Magazine Edge in October 2015. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English.
