posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko light novel imprint revealed on Friday that Nio Nakatani's Bloom Into You (Yagate Kimi ni Naru) manga will get a side story novel centered on the character Sayaka Saeki titled Yagate Kimi ni Naru - Saeki Sayaka ni Tsuite (Bloom Into You - On Sayaka Saeki). Hitoma Iruma (Adachi to Shimamura, Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl, Arata-naru Sekai) will write the novel, with original illustrations by Nakatani. The novel is slated to ship on November 10.
Seven Seas Entertainment publishes Nakatani's original manga in North America, and it describes the manga:
Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and blushes, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her...she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That's when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she's inspired to ask her for help. But when the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself, has her shoujo romance finally begun?
Nakatani launched the manga in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh in April 2015. Kadokawa published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on January 26, and will ship the sixth volume on September 26. As of February 6, the manga has 500,000 copies in print in Japan.
Seven Seas Entertainment shipped the manga's fifth volume on August 14.
The manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation by Makoto Katō (Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation) and TROYCA that will premiere in October.
