'Recently, my sister is unusual.' Manga Ends in May

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga inspired television anime, live-action film adaptations in 2014

The May issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine announced last Saturday that Mari Matsuzawa will end her Saikin, Imōto no Yōsu ga Chotto Okashiin Da Ga. (Recently, my sister is unusual.) manga in the June issue when it ships on May 9.

The manga centers on Mitsuki Kanzaki, a girl living with her step-brother Yūya after her mother remarries. One day, Mitsuki is possessed by the self-proclaimed spirit of a young girl, Hiyori Kotobuki. Hiyori (in Mitsuki's body) must fall in love with Yūya to move toward the "Gates of Heaven."

Matsuzawa launched the manga in Monthly Dragon Age in 2010. Kadokawa published the manga's 10th compiled book volume on January 9. The manga inspired a television anime series in January 2014, and a live-action film adaptation in May of the same year. Crunchyroll streamed the anime series as it aired in Japan, and Discotek released the series on DVD in North America last July.

Matsuzawa's other works include Hinadori Girl, Inukami!, and Sanbun no Ichi. The original Inukami! light novel also inspired an anime, and Seven Seas published the manga in North America.
