Rainbow Days Manga's Side-Story Volume Slated for 2018
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The 15th compiled book volume of Minami Mizuno's Rainbow Days manga revealed on Tuesday that the one book volume of the upcoming Rainbow Days side-story manga is slated for 2018. The new manga will launch in the August issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine on July 13, and Shueisha will publish the series on an irregular serialization schedule.
Rainbow Days centers on a group of four male high school students who are close friends: Natsuki, Tomoya, Keiichi, and Tsuyoshi. The four boys have no club activities, and they hurry through their studies so they can spend their days having fun. Their main topic of interest: love. Natsuki has an unrequited crush on Anna, a girl from another class, and his friends keep meddling in their relationship.
Mizuno launched the manga in the February 2012 issue of Bessatsu Margaret, and ended it on March 13.
The manga inspired a drama CD that Shueisha bundled with a limited edition of the seventh volume in October 2014. The manga then inspired a television anime that premiered in January 2016. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The manga's 13th volume then bundled an original anime DVD last September.
Mizuno also published a one-shot manga titled "Koi o Shiranai Boku-tachi wa" (We Who Know Nothing Of Love), which will tie into a new series that Mizuno will launch in the July issue of Bessatsu Margaret on June 13.
