Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru Manga to End in 4 Chapters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January 2017 issue of Shogakukan's Cheese! magazine announced on Thursday that Kotomi Aoki is ending the Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru manga in the next four chapters. If the manga does not go on break until then, it will end on February 24.
The manga centers around Aki Ogasawara, a "sound creator" who composes for the popular band Crude Play and earns more than 100 million yen (about US$1.3 million) a year. Despite this, he conceals all of this and calls himself a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training). Seeking a life outside of music, he begins seeing a high school girl named Riko Koeda. However, what Aki does not know is that Riko is actually a huge fan of Aki's music. Even with his girlfriend, Aki cannot escape the world of music.
Aoki launched the manga in Cheese! magazine in 2009. Shogakukan published the manga's 20th compiled book volume (seen right) on August 26. The manga inspired a live-action film, which opened in Japan in December 2013. The film starred Takeru Satoh (live-action Rurouni Kenshin) as Aki, and Sakurako Ōhara as Riko. The film also received a 10-episode live-action prologue that debuted in the same month as the film.
Update: The four remaining chapters included the chapter in the January issue.
