News: Tomohiro Matsu’s passing honoured with Listen to Me, Girls. I am Your Father! spin-off volume

Shoichi Nagata, editor-in-chief of Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko imprint, made the confirmation that a spin-off volume will be published for the light novel series Listen to Me, Girls. I am Your Father!. The novels’ author, Tomohiro Matsu, passed away on May 2nd, and he fell ill soon after Dash X Bunko announced this same spin-off for a spring release in January.

Nagata expressed his appreciation for fans’ and colleagues’ messages of condolences, and said that the editorial staff must move forward with Matsu’s last wishes, honouring the fact that he continued to write even during his illness. Before his passing, he left behind a manuscript about the novel series’ three Takanashi sisters as adults. When they received the manuscript, Dash x Bunko prepared and edited it, and Nagata has now revealed that it’s ready for publication.

Their revised plan is to publish it with the tentative title Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! after 1 on July 22nd. Though there are no more details as yet, the editorial staff will announce them as and when they can, and asked for fans’ patience in the meantime.
