Manga about lone graduate student in Tokyo apartment inspired live-action series in September

The February issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine revealed last Friday that Riki Taoka's Wagahai no Heya de Aru (This Is My Room) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on February 12.

The manga centers on 23-year-old graduate student Tetsurō, who lives alone in his apartment in Tokyo. His apartment is in a 41-year-old, two-storey building that is five minutes away from the nearest train station by foot. The series focuses Tetsurō his daily life, as he monologues about such topics as the report that is nearing its deadline, his bitterness in making a mistake at his part-time job, agonizing whether or not he'll ask out the girl he likes, or bantering with his friends via text. Tetsurō is the only character who appears, and his room is the only setting, but sometimes his furniture or electronics will quip during his monologues.

Taoka launched the manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine in May 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume last September. The manga inspired a live-action television series last September. Taoka said in August that he originally planned to end the manga after two more chapters, but decided to continue it after the live-action adaptation was green-lit.
