Kounodori: Dr. Stork Manga to Return for a New Arc in April 2022

Kodansha has announced that Yū Suzunoki’s Kounodori: Dr. Stork manga is returning for a new arc that will focus on COVID-19.

The new arc, titled Kōnodori: Shingata Coronovirus-hen, will launch in Kodansha’s Morning magazine on April 28, 2022. The manga will again center on Sakura Kōnotori, and will detail the struggles of being an OB/GYN involved in childbirth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The manga is described as:

Childbirth isn’t an illness, so under normal circumstances, insurance won’t cover it. Delivery staff doesn’t cure disease or treat injuries, so there’s no need for a doctor… unless, of course, circumstances aren’t normal. This smash-hit drama gives a look into the lives of the men and women who work to welcome 1,000,000 new lives into the world each year in Japan.

Suzunoki launched Kounodori: Dr. Stork in Morning magazine in August 2012. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English digitally.
