Manga did not have new chapter this month, but will return next month

Manga creator Rin Mikimoto stated on her Twitter account on September 13 that her Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight (Gozen 0-ji, Kiss Shi ni Kite yo) manga "is nearing its final chapter."

The manga did not have a new chapter in the October issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine this month. Mikimoto explained that she had been burdened by something she could no longer carry since the start of the year, and that she was finally overburdened. The manga was also originally supposed to have a compiled book volume this month, but she could not make the deadline. However, she stated that the manga will return in the next month with a color opening page.

Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story of the first volume:

At school, Hinana is an honors student, respected by all her classmates. She's totally above things as juvenile as crushes and dating. Secretly, though, she has but one wish: To have a fairy-tale romance. One day, a super-hot celebrity named Kaede shows up at Hinana's high school to shoot a movie, and it becomes difficult to keep up her act. By pure chance—or y'know, fate!—Kaede reveals his own ridiculous personality to Hinana, and her ordinary life turns breathtakingly romantic! Or just really, really … weird?!

Mikimoto launched the manga in the magazine in 2015, and the 10th volume shipped on April 12. Kodansha Comics published the ninth English volume on August 27. The manga was nominated in the Best Shōjo Manga category for the 43rd annual Manga Awards.
