posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine revealed on Monday that Ayu Watanabe (LDK) will end her Men's Life manga in the magazine in two more chapters, not counting the chapter published on Monday. The manga will not appear in the magazine's July issue, and so if it does not take other breaks it will end in the September issue on August 13.
Watanabe launched the manga in the magazine in February 2018, and Kodansha published the third compiled volume on March 31. The manga centers on Mio, who has a hard time interacting with others, but who has an outgoing younger twin brother named Yūta. Mio's life begins to change one day after meeting an upperclassman named Rin.
Watanabe launched the LDK manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2009, and ended it in August 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 24th and final volume in October 2017. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in North America.
LDK inspired a live-action film starring Ayame Gōriki and Kento Yamazaki in April 2014. LDK Hitotsu Yane no Shita, "Suki" ga Futatsu (Two Loves Under One Roof), a new live-action film adaptation of the manga with a different cast, opened in Japan on March 21.
