'It will be breakfast at Tiffany some day' Manga's Story Approaches Climax

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Hirochi Maki's manga inspired live-action series in October 2015

The wraparound jacket band on the 13th volume of Hirochi Maki's Itsuka Tiffany de Chōshoku o (It will be breakfast at Tiffany some day.) manga revealed on Friday that the manga's story is approaching its climax.

The original manga follows Mariko and her friends as they go to different restaurants for breakfast. Mariko is a 28-year-old woman living in Tokyo with her boyfriend of seven years. Mariko becomes disillusioned with her slovenly boyfriend's lifestyle and breaks up with him to get a new start. She fondly remembers the wonderful breakfasts she had in her family growing up, and she decides to start a new lifestyle by visiting different (real-life) places for breakfast every morning. The places she visits range from Good Morning Café to the small Japanese-style restaurant Katō in Tsukiji Fish Market, to bakeries like Le Pain Quotidien.

Maki launched the manga in Shinchosha's Comic Bunch magazine in 2012. The manga ranked at #15 on Honya Club's "Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics of 2014" list.

The manga inspired a live-action series that premiered in October 2015.

Kodansha Comics is digitally publishing Maki's Is Kichijoji the Only Place to Live? (Kichijōji dake ga Sumitai Machi Desu ka?) manga in English. The manga inspired a live-action series in October 2016.
