Alternate Title: オットマン-OTTOMAN-
Author: Kanazawa Shinnosuke
Publisher: Shueisha (Weekly Young Jump)
Volumes: 4 (to end with 5?)
Summary: Souya is a sullen salaryman whose days are spent chasing after work deadlines all while still keeping his dream of becoming a manga artist. To him, his one and only support in life is none other than his beloved wife, Yuuka. One day, on his way back home, he was suddenly caught in an accident and before he knew it, an alien had taken hold of his body! Not only that, the evil threat of another alien is closing in on Yuuka too!
Here comes Souya as "Otto-man", his superpowered husband form, as he jumps in to save his dearest wife! Have a taste of his love for wife and this world!
Comments: So yeah, it's a manga about a husband who gets invaded by a parasite which makes him stronger the more he thinks about how great his wife is. They fight aliens and stuff. Typical action series but with a loving couple.
Main reason I'm adding it here is that as it's being cancelled due to low sales and rankings, the author himself is requesting an overseas licensing company publish his manga - likely in the hopes that it will gain more attention overseas with the possibility of a continuation. I felt bad for him, so I figured why not see if JNC is interested?
Dunno, a manga about a fancy footstool doesn't sound too interesting ;x
