Keiko Nishi Ends Katsu Curry no Hi Manga, Starts New Series
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine published the final chapter of Keiko Nishi's Katsu Curry no Hi manga on Wednesday. The magazine notes that Shogakukan will publish the manga's second and final compiled book volume on January 8.
The manga centers around Miyuki, a 28-year-old office worker who has just broken up with the boyfriend she was living with, and begins trying arranged dates. She finds no one she's interested in, and randomly writes her scattered thoughts inside a notebook at a reading cafe. Later, she finds that a man she doesn't know has made a sharply-written reply in the same notebook, and they begin to converse in this way.
Nishi launched the manga in Monthly Flowers in November 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's first compiled book volume on July 10.
The December issue of Monthly Flowers also revealed that Nishi will launch a new manga series titled Shiro ga Ite (Shiro is Here) in Shogakukan's Zōkan Flowers magazine in its winter issue on November 14. The first chapter will be 60 pages long and will have a color opening page. The manga's art will also adorn the issue's cover.
The magazine teases the new manga's story:
A family of four has just moved into a new house. An abandoned white cat pays them a visit. A second cat series from the creator of Otō-san, Chibi ga Inaku Narimashita!
Nishi had ended Otō-san, Chibi ga Inaku Narimashita in July.
JManga published two volumes of Nishi's four-volume series Kyudo Boys, about the romantic relationships of a group of high school boys, digitally in English before the the site ended service.
Nishi's Otoko no Isshō (A Man's Lifetime) manga received a live-action film adaptation that opened in February.
