Kodama also draws manga about Kids on the Slope live-action filming

The January issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine published the final chapter of Yuki Kodama's Chiisako no Niwa (Chiisako's Garden) manga on Tuesday. Kodama will launch a new manga series in the magazine's May 2018 issue on March 28. The magazine also noted that Kodama will draw a manga about the filming of the live-action film of her Kids on the Slope manga, and this manga will debut just before the film's March 10 opening.

The Chiisako no Niwa manga centers on a girl who has an unexpected meeting in the garden of her house.

Kodama launched the omnibus series in Monthly Flowers on July 28.

Kodama recently concluded her Tsukikage Baby manga on March 28. She launched the manga in Monthly Flowers in November 2012.

Kodama launched her nine-volume Sakamichi no Apollon (Kids on the Slope) manga in Monthly Flowers in 2007, and ended the series in March 2012. Shogakukan published a one-volume spinoff manga titled Sakamichi no Apollon: Bonus Track in November 2012.

The manga inspired a television anime adaptation on Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming block in April 2012. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired under the title Kids on the Slope, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in 2013.

Update on January 29, 2022: Kodama's Ao no Hana Utsuwa no Mori manga, which launched in March 2018, is entering its climax in the April 2022 issue of Monthly Flowers on February 28, 2022. Source: Monthly Flowers March 2022 issue
