posted on by Karen Ressler
In the story, Kaori, Rinko, and Koyuki are three single women who are around 30-years-old. They didn't expect to still be single, and with the Olympics approaching, they're wondering what they can do about it.
Higashimura began the ongoing series in Kodansha's Kiss in March 2014 and Kodansha will publish the sixth volume on September 13. The manga has more than 1.8 million copies in print. The series was nominated for "Best General Manga" at this year's 40th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards, and ranked #2 on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! list of best manga for female readers in 2016.
Higashimura's ongoing Princess Jellyfish manga inspired a 2010 anime, which Funimation released in North America, and a 2014 live-action film. Higashimura's Omo ni Naitemasu also inspired a live-action television series in 2013.
