Stargazing Dog's Takashi Murakami Ends Pino Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The near-future sci-fi manga's story centers on Hana, a woman who works in a pharmaceutical company, and her regular correspondences with the titular Pino, a robot equipped with an AI. Pino is tasked as a caretaker of the animals the company regularly uses for medical trials. But one day, Pino undergoes an unexpected change.
Murakami launched the manga in Manga Action in June 2020.
NBM Publishing released Murakami's one-volume Stargazing Dog manga in 2011. JManga also hosted the manga on its website. The American Library Association's Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) division listed the manga on its list of the top 10 graphic novels for teens in 2013.
