posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Square Enix's G Fantasy magazine revealed on Friday that the magazine's July issue on June 18 will publish the final chapter of Shō Yuzuki's Nil Admirari no Tenbin manga. Yuzuki launched the manga in the magazine in January 2018. The manga's second volume shipped on January 26.
The manga is based on Idea Factory and Otomate's Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan romance game. Otomate released the original game in April 2016. A sequel titled Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Kuroyuri Enyōtan shipped in Japan in September 2017. A Nintendo Switch version of both games titled Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Irodori Nadeshiko launched on September 20.
A 12-episode anime adaptation of the original game premiered in Japan in April 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired with the title Libra of Nil Admirari. A stage play adaptation of the game ran in Tokyo in November 2018.
The story of the game is set in the Taisho Era at the beginning of the 20th century — except the era did not end in 15 years (as it did in real life) but lasted 25 years. To protect her family who fell from their former glory, a girl decides to marry a man whose name she does not even know. However, before she does, her little brother attempts to commit suicide in a mysterious fire, with an old book in hand.
The Imperial Library Information Assets Management Bureau — also known as "Fukurō" — then appears before the confused girl. According to the Fukurō, there exists books called Cursed Tomes, which exert a great influence on those who read it. Moreover, the girl gained the ability to see an "Aura" around Cursed Tomes due to the incident with her brother. Despite her confusion, the girl chooses to leave the "birdcage" of her former life.
