Kimi ni Todoke Manga's 2nd Spinoff Chapter Debuts Next Month

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
1st spinoff chapter debuted on April 13

The October issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Thursday that the second spinoff chapter for Karuho Shiina's Kimi ni Todoke manga will debut in the magazine's next issue on October 12. The new chapter is titled "Unmei no Hito" (Soulmate). The manga will feature in the magazine's front cover, and will have a color opening page.

The May issue published the first 50-page spinoff chapter on April 13. It tells the story of Kazehaya and Sawako's long-distance relationship while Kazehaya is at college.

Shiina began the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2006, and ended it last November. Shueisha published the manga's 30th and final compiled book volume on March 23.

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, and published the 29th volume of the manga on May 1.

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