Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Manga Ends With 12th Volume
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The 11th compiled book volume of Rin Mikimoto's Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight (Gozen 0-ji, Kiss Shi ni Kite yo) manga revealed on Wednesday that the manga's 12th volume will be its last. The volume will ship in spring 2020.
Mikimoto hinted in September that the manga was "nearing its final chapter."
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 this year.
The manga is inspiring a live-action film that will open in Japan on December 6.
