NisiOisin's Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku Novel to Get Manga Adaptation
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The August issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine announced on Monday that Yō Asami (MAOYU manga) will launch a manga adaptation of NisiOisin's (Bakemonogatari, Medaka Box) e-book novel Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyōko Okitegami) in the magazine's next issue, which Kodansha will publish on August 6. The manga will have a color opening page.
The magazine teases:
Kyōko Okitegami, also known as... the forgetful detective.
The original novel's story is about a detective named Kyōko Okitegami who is also known as the forgetful detective. She forgets everything in a day, but solves cases the same day. (Her name has the Japanese word for "today" in it.) An unlucky young man named Yakusuke Kakushidate somehow ends up as the suspect in every case, and he always asks for the detective.
The Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku novel debuted in both print and e-book editions in October last year. The book features artwork by NisiOisin's Monogatari Series illustrator, VOfan.
