'You Don't Know Gunma Yet' Manga Ends Serialization
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The manga's 10th volume had revealed in December that the series will end with the 11th volume this summer.
Ida launched the manga on Kurage Bunch in October 2013.
The comedy manga centers on Nori Kamitsuki, who moves from Chiba Prefecture to a fictionalized version of Gunma Prefecture northwest of Tokyo, and the story focuses on Gunma's culture. Before moving to Gunma, Kamitsuki only sees that the prefecture has a fearsome reputation on the net. Upon moving, he soon makes contact with the people who hold a strong love of Gunma's culture.
The manga inspired a 12-episode series of anime shorts that premiered in April 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The manga also inspired a smartphone game titled Omae wa Mada Gunma o Shiranai Meisanpin-hen (You Don't Know Gunma Yet: Famous Products Edition) that launched in July.
