Atsuko Nanba's New Manga is Titled 'Come on a My House'
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The August issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine revealed on Friday that manga creator Atsuko Nanba's new manga series is titled Come on a My House (Kamona My House). The manga will debut in the magazine's September issue on August 10 with a 91-page first chapter with three color pages.
The original announcement in May hinted that the manga will deal with an age-gap romance between a 16- or 17-year-old high school girl and a 24-year-old man. The magazine hints that the girl hides her loneliness by always going to her "secret place," while the man is a creator similar to the character Namio from Nanba's Ao-Natsu manga. The magazine's July issue clarified that the girl always goes to an empty Japanese-style house after school, and spends her time freely there, until she has a fateful encounter.
Nanba launched the Ao-Natsu manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend in 2013, and ended it last August. Kodansha released the manga's eighth and final compiled book volume last October. The manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation titled Ao-Natsu: Kimi ni Koi Shita 30-Nichi (Ao-Natsu: The 30 Days I Loved You) that will open in Japan on August 1.
Nanba's other manga include Tonari no Atashi, Sprout, Senpai to Kanojo, and Taiyo wa Kimi ni Kagayaku.
