Kimi ni Todoke Manga Gets 2nd Spinoff Chapter This Fall

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
1st spinoff chapter launched on Friday

The May issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Friday that Karuho Shiina's Kimi ni Todoke manga will get a second spinoff chapter this fall. The May issue published the first spinoff chapter, which tells the story of Kazehaya and Sawako's long-distance relationship while Kazehaya is at college. The chapter has 50 pages.

Shiina began the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2006, and ended it on November 13.

The manga tells the story of Sawako Kuronuma, nicknamed Sadako (from The Ring) because of her long black hair and pale skin makes her appear gloomy. The popular Shōta Kazahaya builds a friendship with Sawako that blossoms into romance.

The series has consistently ranked among the top-selling manga in Japan. Viz Media publishes the English version of the manga.

NIS America released the first and second seasons of the anime adaptation. A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan in 2010.
