Manga about couple in marriage of convenience ended last year

The January issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine announced on Saturday that Tsunami Umino's The Full-Time Wife Escapist (Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu) manga will resume serialization after a year and 10 months in the magazine's March issue in January. The magazine also asked readers to look forward to news.

In the manga's story, Mikuri Moriyama has a graduate degree, but because of job scarcity she can only find temporary employment. She finds work as a personal housekeeper for Hiramasa Tsuzaki, a subordinate at her father's company. When her parents decide to move to the countryside for retirement, Mikuri is running out of time to find a more permanent job. Torn about what to do, Tsuzaki suddenly proposes to Mikuri, and the two enter a "contract marriage" since Mikuri wants to let her parents move to the countryside without worry and Tsuzaki doesn't want to hire another housekeeper.

The series began in Kiss magazine in November 2012, and Kodansha shipped the ninth and final compiled volume in March 2017. The manga won the shojo category of the 39th Kodansha Awards. A live-action television series adaptation aired in Japan in fall 2016.

Kodansha Comics publishes the manga digitally in English.
