The November issue of Shueisha‘s Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Friday that Karuho Shiina‘s Kimi ni Todoke manga will end in the next issue on November 13. The manga will appear on the issue’s cover and the final chapter will have color opening pages.
The magazine announced in June that the series would enter its final arc in the August issue. However, the manga went on a one-month break in July due to Shiina’s sudden illness. The manga returned in the September issue in August.
The manga tells the story of Sawako Kuronuma, nicknamed Sadako (from The Ring) because of her long black hair and pale skin makes her appear gloomy. The popular Shōta Kazahaya builds a friendship with Sawako that blossoms into romance.
Shiina began the series in 2006, and the 29th volume shipped on July 25. The series has consistently ranked among the top-selling manga in Japan. Viz Media publishes the English version of the manga.
NIS America released the first and second seasons of the anime adaptation. A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan in 2010.
