Here’s a little translation of the Book 4 announcement:

Sakae is appointed to The News due to Shitara’s support. Sakae takes a new step forward, working for the man who is the kindest to him and also the harshest to him

Ichiho-sensei says that it’s a story about the GP (Gleefully loves scraping by Producer) and the CP (Can’t be trusted to eat properly Producer) acting a little immature at work. 😂😂😂

GP = General Producer AKA the showrunner
CP = Chief Producer AKA the adjunct showrunner

I am so excited about the release date announced for the next book of the spinoff! I’m surprised that the book is named Tsunaide instead of Hiraite, which has already been published. I wonder if the over-arching theme is more important in Tsunaide. Some thoughts on the name Tsunaide: it can mean connecting things or people together (physically, emotionally, or sexually) and also connecting footage together for a rough cut in editing.
