Sanko Takada's Taberu Dake Manga to End Next Month
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Saturday that Sanko Takada's seinen manga series Taberu Dake (Just Eating) will end in the January issue on November 27.
The gourmet manga revolves around a mysterious, perpetually hungry, goddess-like girl whose name, age, and job is unknown. This woman will appear out of nowhere only to have a meal with others. Each chapter follows her encounter with a new person: as she drinks milk with an elementary school girl after a bath, eats an entire cake with a lonely man on Christmas Eve, and even as she transcends time to eat deer hot pot with the inhabitants of a mountain village in ancient times. When she leaves, those she encounters are left with smiles on their faces.
Takada launched the manga in Monthly Big Comic Spirits in 2010, and Shogakukan published third volume of the manga in June. The series received a 12-episode live-action adaptation starring actress and vocalist Mariko Goto and Hirofumi Arai earlier this year.
