This year's 19th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine revealed on Wednesday that Modomu Akagawara's Anitomo (My Brother's Friend) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on September 20. Hakusensha will ship the manga's 10th and final compiled book volume on November 20.

The romantic comedy manga centers on the relationship between old-fashioned and domestically minded high school girl Mai Nanase, and her brother's friend, the innocent late bloomer Sōta Nishino. Mai and her brother Yukihiro's room are adjacent to each other, with thin walls that allow them to overhear each other. The story begins when, one day, she overhears Sōta telling Yukihiro that he thinks Mai is cute.

Akagawara first published the manga as a one-shot in Hakusensha's The Hana to Yume magazine in January 2015 before launching it as a series in Hana to Yume that May. The manga was initially planned as a short serialization, but it is ongoing. Hakusensha published the manga's eighth compiled volume on May 18, and will ship the ninth volume on September 20.

The manga inspired a live-action film and series. The series premiered on March 25, and the film opened in Japan on May 26.
