'Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu' Gets New 1-Shot Manga in December
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 24th issue of Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine revealed on Tuesday that Kanan Minami will publish a new one-shot manga for the Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu manga in the magazine's next issue on December 5. The manga will have a color opening page and 33 total pages. The one-shot will focus on Tsubaki and Kyōta (highlight the following white text to read spoilers) [as a married couple with two children.]
Minami intended to previously publish a one-shot for Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu, delayed it due to her poor physical condition. Her Awa-Koi manga also entered a long hiatus beginning on July 5 for the same reason.
Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu began serializing in Sho-Comi in January 2008, and it ended in 2011. The manga inspired two anime DVDs in 2010 and a live-action film in 2012. The manga has 10 million copies in print.
The original manga follows Tsubaki, a girl who is indifferent to both romance and fashion, even though she loves giving other people adorable hairstyles. On the first day of high school, she happened to sit next to Kyōta, a mean-spirited boy who teases her. In retaliation, she spontaneously pulls out scissors and cuts off his long tresses of hair. Thus begins the long love-hate relationship between Tsubaki and Kyōta.
Minami launched the Awa-Koi manga in the magazine in 2016, and the third compiled book volume shipped on March 26.
