Original animes or theatrical releases often inspire manga adaptation. Makoto Shinkai’s second film Weathering With You, popularly known as Tenki No Ko, was another successful film that inspired a manga adaptation.
Tenki No Ko’s second compiled volume revealed on Tuesday that the manga adaptation would reach its conclusion with its third and final volume in October in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine.
Wataru KUBOTA’s manga adaptation began serialization in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine in July 2019. It received its first compiled volume last November and second compiled volume this Tuesday.
Vertical has licensed the series and will ship its first compiled volume on September 1 in the US. The company described the story as :
“The summer of freshman year of high school. A boy named Hodaka runs away from his island home and goes to Tokyo, where he spends every day in oneness.
Then, in the corner of the bustling city, he meets a girl named Hina. But he soon finds out that she possesses a mysterious power.”
The film had also inspired a novel authored by Shinkai himself, which was released in print and digital format by Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko on July 18, 2019.
