Solanin's Asano to End Umibe no Onna no Ko Manga

posted on by Egan Loo
Inio Asano's story of 2 teens exploring their relationship to end in January

The 77th volume of Ohta Books' Manga Erotics F magazine revealed on Thursday that manga creator Inio Asano (Solanin) is drawing two more chapters of his Umibe no Onna no Ko (A Girl by the Seaside) manga. The manga will end in the 79th issue on January 7, 2013.

The story revolves around Koume, an ordinary middle school girl who lives in a small town near the sea. She attempts to have a physical relationship without emotional attachments with an introverted classmate named Isobe, but things do not work out the way she anticipated.

The manga launched in 2009, and Ohta Books published the first book volume last year. Viz Media published Asano's Solanin in North America, and that manga was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2009. Viz also published his What a wonderful world! manga.
