New series to follow young part-time workers at library

The May issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine revealed on Monday that Akiko Higashimura will launch the Tokyo Tarareba Musume Season 2 manga in the magazine's June issue, which will ship on April 25. The new manga will follow the young part-time workers at the library.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the original manga digitally in English under the title Tokyo Tarareba Girls, and it describes the manga:

"I spent all my time wondering 'what if,' then one day I woke up and I was 33." She's not that bad-looking, but before she knew it, Rinko was thirty-something and single. She wants to be married by the time the Tokyo Olympics roll around in six years, but...that might be easier said than done! The new series by Akiko Higashimura erupts with sharp opinions on girls and tons of laughs!!

Higashimura launched Tokyo Tarareba Girls in Kiss in March 2014 and ended it in April 2017. Kodansha published the ninth and final compiled book volume in July 2017. She later drew three new "side story" chapters in Kiss last year.

The manga series inspired a live-action television series that premiered in January 2017 and ended in March 2017.
