Junko's Kiss Him, Not Me Manga Ends
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's March issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine published the final chapter of Junko's Kiss Him, Not Me (Watashi ga Motete Dōsunda) manga on Tuesday. The 14th and final compiled volume will ship on March 13, and will get a limited edition that includes a fan book.
The magazine had announced in December that the manga would end in three chapters.
Hi there! My name is Serinuma Kae. I'm the kind of girl who loves checking out boys and fantasizing about them getting friendly (and more) with each other - I'm what you might call a fujoshi. One day, my beloved (yes, he's an anime character) died, and the shock of it all was more than I could have ever prepared for! My grief over his passing resulted in some ridiculous weight-loss!
And you won't believe what happened next! Soon after my change, the four most divinely gorgeous boys in my school asked me out on dates! I accepted them all, and you'd think I'd be happy with my sudden popularity, but the truth is, my heart only yearns for a prince to be next to his prince. Ahh, yes, boys, I'd much prefer that you turn your affections elsewhere and Kiss Him, Not Me!
The manga began in Bessatsu Friend in 2013, and Kodansha published the manga's 13th compiled book volume (seen right) on November 13. Kodansha Comics shipped the 12th volume on September 12. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime in October 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed an English dub.
