Idumi Kirihara's Mata, Onaji Yume o Miteita Manga Ends in August

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Adaptation of I Want to Eat Your Pancreas author Yoru Sumino's novel launched in September

The September issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine revealed on Wednesday that Idumi Kirihara will end the manga adaptation of Yoru Sumino's Mata, Onaji Yume o Miteita (I Saw the Same Dream Again) novel in the magazine's next issue on August 25.

The novel centers on grade schooler Nanoka Koyanagi, who meets a short-tailed cat and three different women as she is out taking a walk. The first woman is Minami, a high schooler whom Nanoka sees has many wounds on her wrist. The second woman is another high schooler, constantly called a "whore" by her classmates. The third woman is an old lady, trying to live out her twilight years in peace.

Futabasha published the novel in February 2016. Kirihara launched the manga adaptation of the novel in Monthly Action last September. Futabasha published the manga's second compiled book volume on July 12 and will ship the third volume on September 12. Kirihara also drew a manga of Sumino's Kimi no Suizō o Tabetai (I Want to Eat Your Pancreas) novel in the same magazine from August 2016 to May 2017.

Sumino's Kimi no Suizō o Tabetai novel inspired a live-action film that premiered in Japan in July 2017. The novel is inspiring an anime film that will open in Japan on September 1. Aniplex of America will screen the film in theaters in the United States. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed both the original novel and the manga adaptation.

Aurora Publishing, Inc. previously published three volumes of Kirihara's Hitohira manga. JManga also digitally published three volumes of the manga. The manga inspired a 2007 television anime series.
