Kimi ni Todoke Manga Gets 3rd Spinoff Chapter in March

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
2nd spinoff chapter debuted on Friday

The November issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Friday that Karuho Shiina's Kimi ni Todoke manga will get a third spinoff chapter in the magazine's April 2019 issue on March 13, 2019.

This year's May issue published the first 50-page spinoff chapter on April 13, and the November issue published the second chapter alongside the announcement of the third chapter on Friday.

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 will publish the 30th volume on December 4.

NIS America released both seasons of the television anime adaptation on home video. A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan in 2010.
