Manga about timid man meeting enigmatic girl launched in 2016

This year's third issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine the Third revealed on Wednesday that Kōji Kumeta and Yasu's Nan kuru Nee-san manga will end in the magazine's next issue on February 20.

The manga follows Issa Kinishi, a young man who worries and concerns himself too much over many different things, and spends his life being harmless and inoffensive. One day he meets a beautiful, tanned enigmatic young woman. This young woman uses a smartphone with a cracked screen, goes into restaurants without caring about their online ratings, and makes curry without caring about the stains she gets on her clothes. She weighs on Issa's mind so much that he accidentally starts stalking her.

The manga's title comes from the phrase "nankurunai," which means "don't worry be happy." Nee-san means older sister.

Kumeta and Yasu launched the manga in Young Magazine the Third in February 2016. Kodansha published the manga's fourth volume last August.

Kumeta and Yasu previously collaborated on the Joshiraku manga. The pair launched the manga in the inaugural issue of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and ended the six-volume manga in September 2013. The manga received a television anime adaptation in 2012.

Yasu illustrated Yuyuko Takemiya's Toradora! romantic comedy light novel series, and also provided the original character designs for Kagari Tamaoka's Mangirl! manga. Toradora! and Mangirl! received television anime adaptations in 2008 and 2013, respectively. Yasu and Coolkyoushinja recently ended their Diotima Manual: Kamisama-tachi no Ren'ai Daikō manga on January 27.

Kumeta ended his Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei manga in May 2012. Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei inspired three television anime series and several OVAs. Kumeta also drew the original character designs for P.A. Works' The Eccentric Family anime.
