Kenjiro Hata posted on Twitter the cover of Tonikaku Kawaii (TONIKAWA): Fly me to the Moon Volume 22 on Saturday. The volume is available at the price of ¥627 (≒$4.5) and is scheduled to be released on December 16, 2022. The manga is currently being serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Magazine.
The newly-unveiled cover shows Tsukasa Yuzaki holding a sword in her hand(s) with a serious look on her face. In front of her stands Kaguya with a big smile holding something in her left hand. “You can’t see what Kaguya has in her left hand without spreading the cover, so please buy the volume and check it!” the author says in the tweet.
Kenjiro Hata launched Tonikaku Kawaii (TONIKAWA) or Fly me to the Moon manga in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday in February 2018 and the first volume was released in May 2018. Seven Arcs is animating the anime adaptation and the first season aired from October to December 2021 with a total of 12 episodes.

From the day his parents named him, Nasa Yuzaki has felt connected to outer space…whether he likes it or not.

Since she insists on marrying him, Nasa will have plenty of chances to find out!
