Manga Stars Come Out for Kimi ni Todoke Tribute Book

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Karuho Shiina's long-running Kimi ni Todoke romance manga ended last month after 10 years of publication. Fans read each chapter about the once lonely Sawako "Sadako" Kuronuma as she revamps her high school life with friends and a burgeoning romantic relationship with Shōta Kazahaya. Some of those fans weren't just Bessatsu Margaret readers, but Shiina's manga peers.

A total of 28 manga creators contributed to the Kimi ni Todoke Tribute Book, a bonus that shipped with the January 2018 issue of Bessatsu Margaret on December 13. The book includes both illustrations and messages of congratulations from the likes of Gosho Aoyama (Detective Conan), Hirohiko Araki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), Sui Ishida (Tokyo Ghoul), and Yumi Tamura (Basara).
