Monster Girl Doctor will hit Japanese TV in 2020.

Yoshino Origuchi and illustrator Z-Ton’s Monster Girl Doctor launched under Shueisha’s Dash-X imprint on June 24, 2016. The series currently spans six compiled volumes, with volume 7 slated to hit stores on November 22.

Seven Seas currently holds the rights to the series, which they describe as:

In the town of Lindworm where monsters and humans coexist, Dr. Glenn runs an exemplary medical clinic for monster girls with his lamia assistant, Sapphee. Whether receiving a marriage proposal by a centaur injured in battle, palpating the injury of a mermaid, or suturing the delicate wounds of a flesh golem, Dr. Glenn performs his job with grace and confidence. But when an unsavory character seeks to steal a harpy egg, how will the unflappable Dr. Glenn respond…?
