This year's 20th issue of Kodansha's biweekly Kiss magazine has announced on Saturday that a side story manga series based on Tomoko Ninomiya's nodame cantabile manga will launch in the 24th issue. The regular nodame cantabile manga series just ended in the same 20th issue on Saturday. The story centers on two music prodigies who find themselves on parallel paths in Japan and later Europe.
The first of two live action Nodame Cantabile Saishū Gakushō (Nodame Cantabile: The Final Movement) films will open in Japan on December 19, and the final television anime series will premiere in January.
Tsunami Umino (Kohkyu, Tsunamix) and Yumiko Suzuki will launch their new manga Shokōjo and Fumetsu no Akko-chan, respectively, in the 21st issue of Kiss on October 24.
