Peko Watanabe's 1122: For a Happy Marriage Manga Approaches Climax

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The sixth compiled volume of Peko Watanabe's 1122: For a Happy Marriage manga revealed on Friday that the manga's story is approaching its climax. The manga's seventh volume will ship in Japan next spring.

Kodansha Comics began releasing the manga in English in October, and it describes the story:

Wife: Ichiko Aihara. Husband: Otoya Aihara. Married for seven years, they get along well, but sexless and without children, they agree to see other people. Otoya has an affair with Mitsuki, and Ichiko is aware of it. Looking at Otoya in a state of bliss with Mitsuki, Ichiko begins to change, too ... Peko Watanabe tells a story of lies and truth—whether or not you ever want to get married, the real life of this thirtysomething couple might give you some second thoughts about that institution we call marriage!

Watanabe launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning two magazine in September 2016. The manga was nominated in the 12th Manga Taisho awards earlier this year.
