A total of 25 million copies of all of Kenjir Hata’s manga works have been published, according to the 21st volume of his Fly Me to the Moon (Tonikaku Kawaii) manga, which was released on September 15.
The newest manga by Hata is called Fly Me to the Moon. In February 2018, Hata released the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday, a publication published by Shogakukan. The 12th collected book volume of the manga, which is published in English by Viz Media, was made available on August 9.
The manga served as the basis for a 12-episode television anime adaptation that debuted in October 2020. The TV show, TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You, was broadcast on Crunchyroll as it aired. In August 2021, Tonikaku Kawaii SNS, an original video animation (OVA) for the show, was released in Japan on Blu-ray Disc and started streaming on Crunchyroll the same day. On November 22, a new anime video will make its premiere. A second season of the anime is also planned.
In 2007, 2009, 2012, and 2013, four television anime seasons and a three-episode original video (OVA) project were all based on Hata’s earlier manga, Hayate the Combat Butler. The anime movie Hayate the Combat Butler! Heaven Is a Place on Earth, released in 2011, was also influenced by the book.
