Series begins in WSJ 2009 #13 (release date 23 Feb 2009)
About the series:
Strong delinquent Oga (nicknamed Ogre, Demon, or "it'd be alright if he'd just die" by other delinquents) picks up a baby that turns out to be the son of the Great Demon King! Chosen to raise the baby until he's in age of destroying mankind, together with the demon maid Hilda, they're sure to make mankind die... of laughter!
About the Author:
Former assistant of Iwashiro Toshiaki (Mieru Hito, Psyren). A one-shot version of the manga, which won the magazine's 4th Kin-Mirai-Hai (Gold Future Cup) prize, had run in last year's combined 37th/38th issue.

From what I've seen from the RAWs, it's about a demonic baby of some sorts, and his "guardian". I'll add more information when I find it.

Awesome. the art looks unusually like Volleyball Tsukai crossed over with Sket Dance.... A pleasing combination. Ryuhei has had a previous oneshot about a year or so back if i recall.
This oneshot will be serialized starting in WSJ issue #13 (on sale February 23, 2009). Please use this thread for discussion about the series as well, I'll remove the 'oneshot' prefix.Quote:
damn i was one week off!
Any news on when a raw will be released or anything?
Thursday/Friday/Saturday this week, probably. Depends on the people who scan Jump

Thanx for that i was wondering its got me interested and whats the character in your sig from he looks kool
and now i play the waiting game for my precious new trickle of gag manga to appear... the more the merrier!
This manga must be translated and scanlated
I didn't understand anything of the raw. But the raw itself was so good enough that this one has to survive...
it's seriously powerful stuff to be so effective just in raw form to me... so i'm with ya on this one koenosaki, it has to be transed and scanned.
and it continues jump's yearly need for some semi naked/ naked children.... which whilst disturbing seems to be their hot spot for some basic gags
I'll third the need for a translation at the very least. I liked raw, but as Koenosaki said, I too am quite lost when it comes to what is actually going on in the story. I mean a big man was floating in the river with an arrow in his chest and then turns into a baby. Looks funny.
Goodness I don't like this... I can't take manga in which the silliness outweighs the action...
I'll say that I am intrigued by it...mainly the art. I'm bad with names though, but it's about the main character guy being chosen by the baby to be his 'parent' and raise him to be a good 'demon king.' The girl's sort of the baby's nanny. As I said on the Jump thread, I'd consider this if it weren't for the fact that I'm not really taking manga from jump, and the fact that I'm already doing Hajimete no Aku and Gintama as two gag series. I do hope it survives a while though, and perhaps if it leans a bit more towards the action side of things (and no one is translating) I'll take a second look.
Let me just say... some panels made me laugh my head off... In a way, some of the gag used was almost like Yuusha Gaku, but personally, this one was much more to my liking xD
