Miwa Ueda's Saredo Itoshiki Otsuma-sama Manga Reaches Climax (Updated)
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The manga is based on Daisuke Suzuki's novel of the same name. Suzuki's novel launched in 2018. The novel tells the autobiographical story about Suzuki, who worked as a reporter but had a stroke at age 41. The novel follows his rehabilitation and recovery, and his wife, who supported him. Ueda launched the manga in Be-Love in July.
Ueda's original Peach Girl shōjo manga ran in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine from its October 1997 issue through its January 2004 issue. Ueda also published a spinoff manga, Peach Girl: Sae's Story, in 2005. Tokyopop published both the original manga and the spinoff in North America, but split the original manga into two separate series: Peach Girl and Peach Girl: Change of Heart.
Ueda launched the sequel manga series Peach Girl NEXT in Be-Love in August 2016, and ended the series in December 2019. The manga's eighth and final volume shipped on February 13. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English.
Update: The manga ended in the March issue of Be-Love on February 1, 2021. Source: Be-Love March issue
