After his Isekai character-killing manga got cancelled, Kakegurui mangaka returns… with an isekai manga
Well, if you can’t beat them join them. Champion RED magazine has revealed that writer Homura Kawamoto, who is one of the people behind the Kakegurui manga, is doing a new isekai story. Isekai no Hime to no Koi Bakuchi ni, Jinrui no Sonbou ga Kakkatemasu (Humanity’s Existence Depends on Love Gambling with Another World’s Princess). And yes, this new manga comes right after his much anticipated manga about killing overpowered isekai characters, Isekai Tenseisha Goroshi -Cheat Slayer-, got cancelled after just one chapter.
For this new manga, Kawamoto has partnered with Zuzu Kamiya. Its story follows Kazuki, a normal human from the human world who suddenly gets entrusted to look after the daughter of the Demon King from another world, Ryumis. If he accepts this task, he will die. However, if he doesn’t, the whole human world will get destroyed.
For Isekai Tenseisha Goroshi -Cheat Slayer-, Kawamoto teamed up with artist Aki Yamaguchi. It seems that the readers have pointed out to Kadokawa that the main villains really seem to look like certain popular isekai characters, such as Kirito (Sword Art Online), Rimuru (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), Aqua (KONOSUBA), Ainz (Overlord), Tanya (Saga of Tanya The Evil), and even Catarina (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! and Subaru (Re:Zero).) The company found it problematic that many of their more popular characters are getting portrayed as bad guys, so they cancelled the series after just one chapter.
The manga itself followed a protagonist in a revenge story where he kills people reborn from another world that possess “cheat skills”. The protagonist is neither an isekai character, nor does he posses any “cheat skill”. He just wants revenge on the reincarnated individuals who wronged him. It was supposed to run every month, but with its cancellation, it does not look like we’re gonna see another chapter in the next issue of Dragon Age magazine.
