Manga about 35-year-old office worker who hasn’t had a girlfriend for 10 years launches in 2020
Kodoani.com – The Rakuten Books retail website for this year’s June issue of Shodensha’s Feel Young magazine lists that the manga Kocchi Muite yo Mukai-kun (Turn to Me Mukai-kun) by Yōko Nemu will get a live action adaptation on Nippon Television. The magazine is out on Mondays.
The manga follows a 35-year-old office worker named Mukai-kun, who has been single for 10 years and still misses his former girlfriend, Miwako. At work, Mukai-kun begins to notice Nakatani-san, a temporary employee. Caught between an old love that can’t be let go and a new encounter, Mukai-kun begins the “find the difference” love game.
Nemu launched the manga in Feel Young magazine in June 2020. Shodensha published the manga’s first compiled book volume in January 2021 and will publish the fifth volume on Monday.
