The July issue of Hakusensha's LaLa shōjo magazine will announce that Yuki Kure's La Corda D'Oro Blue Sky manga adaptation will end in the following issue.
The manga adapts KOEI's La Corda D'Oro 3 dating simulation game. Kure also created the original character designs in the game itself. The story follows a girl named Kanade and her relationships with the orchestra members and the other boys at her school. The series launched in LaLa in November and the first compiled volume shipped on April 4.
Kure created the manga adaptation of Koei's first La Corda D'Oro dating simulation game, and she ended that earlier manga in 2011. Viz Media published the last of the 17 La Corda D'Oro manga volumes in North America in May. Kure also drew Linden Hall no Aria -Kin-iro no Corda Series- (Linden Hall Aria: La Corda d'Oro Series), another manga that followed La Corda D'Oro 3's Kanade, in Lala.
The anime adaptation of La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky premiered on April 5 and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it broadcasts in Japan.
The game franchise already inspired a television anime series in 2006, and a sequel, La Corda D'Oro ~secondo passo~, aired in spring of 2009. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the first series on DVD in North America, and Crunchyroll streamed both anime.
