New Manga Launch in Bessatsu Shōnen Champion from Hiromasa Okujima, Kentarō Satō, Shingo Honda

On Thursday, the September issue of Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shonen Champion magazine revealed that Hiromasa Okujima, Kentaro Sato, and Shingo Honda will each debut a new manga in the magazine over the next few issues. Santa Uonome and Aka Watanabe will both release new manga.

Okujima's manga is titled Baban Baban Ban Vampire (as seen below in Okujima's Tweet), and it will debut in the November issue of the magazine on October 12. The manga is described in the magazine as a "new type of BL" (indicated here as "Bloody Love Comedy") storey centred on a "professional vampire" and a "pure boy." The storey begins with Ranmaru, a 450-year-old vampire who works part-time at an old public bath. He craves the blood of an 18-year-old virgin and thus keeps an eye on the development of 15-year-old Rihito, the bathhouse owners' son.

The first volume of SHOOWA and Okujima's Bad Boys, Happy Home (Dosei Yankee Akamatsu Seven) manga was released physically and digitally on July 13 by Viz Media's SuBLime imprint for boys-love manga. The second volume will be released in October. In April 2018, the manga was published in Akita Shoten's Kachi Comi magazine.
Sato's manga is titled Fushi to Batsu (Immortality and Punishment), and it will be released on November 12 in the magazine's December issue. The manga, according to the magazine, is about a certain boy who is hiding a dark secret. Despair approaches him while he is incarcerated in a love hotel.

Sato previously revealed that they were working on a new manga in April. Sat (Magical Girl Apocalypse) first published the horror manga Magical Girl Site on the Champion Tap! manga website in July 2013, before moving it to Weekly Shnen Champion in September 2017. With 16 volumes, the manga came to an end in 2019. Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the manga in English, and the 15th volume was released on June 29.

The manga inspired a television anime that aired from April to June of 2018. Outside of Japan, the anime was available on Amazon Prime Video.

Honda's manga will debut on December 10 in the January 2022 issue. The title of the manga is not mentioned in the announcement. Honda debuted Creature! (Hakaij) in Akita Shoten's Monthly Shnen Champion magazine in 2010, and it ran until June 2017. In Japan, Akita Shoten published 21 compiled book volumes for the manga. The series will be released digitally in English by Akita Publishing.

On January 12, 2022, Uonome's manga will debut in the February 2022 issue. The title of the manga is not mentioned in the announcement. Gitaijin A, Watanabe's manga, will debut in the magazine's next issue on September 10.
