posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Ririo and Aya Tsukishima's Perfect Crime manga revealed on April 15 that the planned spinoff for the manga will launch on the online manga distribution platform Mecha Comics sometime late this month. (Note: The Japanese word "mecha" means "absurd" or "extreme" and does not refer to robots or mechanics.)
The Twitter account also revealed that Tsukishima will digitally launch a new manga titled Anata o, Nomu (I Will Drink of You) in late May. Futabasha's KoiYui imprint will publish the manga digitally. The manga is based on Rizu's cellphone novel.
The Perfect Crime manga ended with its 10th and final volume on January 16.
WWWave Corporation's Coolmic website publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
"I was the only one who didn't know. I've been entangled in the snares of an impure love... but who is the real perpetrator of this 'perfect crime'?" Kaori Maejima is an interior design planner for a construction firm. At first glance, Kaori is well-established in life, but she's been carrying on an affair with her married boss for seven years. It's a barren love with no hope for the future, but she's become reconciled to it. Then a man appears before her, Haruto Shinonome, a designer transfering from the Hong Kong branch office. When this Shinonome discovers the adulterous affair, Kaori's life begins to change, and she falls into a dangerous trap. A thrilling and emotional adult love story!
The manga inspired a live-action television adaptation that premiered in January 2019. The manga adapts Ririo's original novel of the same name.
