Here’s the official announcement for the new manga:

The setting of the story is said to be a “concept cafe.” Concept cafes are a phenomenon that originated in Akihabara, Japan, born from otaku culture. These cafes can adopt any theme, whether it’s maids, cats, or even robots. In the promotional image, a character is pictured wearing a maid-like outfit.

Shonen Jump+ is an online platform facilitated by Weekly Shonen Jump. It allows readers to read digital versions of manga and the magazine itself. Manga Plus is available as a free-to-use app on iOS and Android devices, as is Viz Media’s Shonen Jump app. With it, a large sample of manga can be read for free. Tsuruko Returns the Favor will likely appear on Manga Plus and the Viz Media app and sites worldwide.

Tsuruko Returns the Favor will begin its serialization on August 25 via Shonen Jump+. It will likely appear on the Manga Plus and Viz Manga app.
