posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The March issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine announced on Monday that Yō Asami's manga adaptation of NisiOisin's Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyōko Okitegami) novels will end its "first season" in the magazine's next issue on March 6. The chapter will have a color opening page.
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 2014. The book features artwork by NisiOisin's Monogatari Series illustrator, VOfan. Kodansha published the eighth novel, titled Okitegami Kyōko no Ryokōki (The Travelogue of Kyōko Okitegami), in November.
The novels also received a live-action television series adaptation that premiered on NTV in October 2015. Yui Aragaki (Digimon Savers, Ranma ½ live-action drama) and Masaki Okada (Mahō Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto) starred in the drama as Kyōko Okitegami and Yakusuke Kakushidate, respectively.
