It's a bit surprising that it took manga so long to feature a computer systems engineer as the hero of a sexy seinen relationship comedy. Yoshiru Konogi recently finished Comic Studio, about a wannabe mangaka who takes a job as a live-in assistant to the author of a badass fighting manga, only to find that author is a woman who looks like a moe girl, with a tsundere attitude.
Now, he's kicked off SE - System Engineer in this year's fifth issue of Young Animal (on sale today) - the home of Berserk, Detroit Metal City, Futari Ecchi and the like.
A preview of the first chapter can be seen online here: http://www.younganimal.com/se/
The issue also features Yuki Honda's Tokyo Yamimushi - 2nd Scenario - Pandora, about a young man kidnapped and forced to undertake dangerous job to pay off his dept to a group of criminals - a live action adaptation has recently been announced, with more information promised for the next issue.
