posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The second chapter of Aoi Makino's new Sayonara Mini Skirt (Good Bye My Mini Skirt) manga debuted in the October issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine on Monday. To mark the release, two versions of an introduction video for the manga's second chapter began streaming on the series' official website. The videos combine live-action footage with panels from the manga.
When the manga launched in August, Ribon editor-in-chief Sōichi Aida described it as "exceptional" and said, "This series will continue no matter what. In order to deliver it to you."
The story of the manga's first chapter begins at a handshake event for the idol group Pure Club, who are known as "the best mini skirt idols in the world." Only Pure Club member Karen Amamiya has a huge line at the event. Eventually, a rain-soaked male fan comes to the front of the line. When Karen goes to shake his hand, he cuts her with a knife.
A half year later, high school student Nina Kamiyama is the only girl at school who wears the uniform pants instead of a skirt. She is disconnected from her fellow students and always alone. When classmates start to talk to her, she brusquely cuts them off.
The teacher suddenly tells Nina's class that all club activities for female students are cancelled for the time being. A suspicious person was reported going after a girl at a nearby school as she returned home. In light of the incident, female students return home in groups without participating in after-school activities. However, Nina leaves alone. A figure with a knife appears out of nowhere.
