The science-fiction manga will center on scientists who live their everyday lives in the strange world of “bugs.” The main characters of the story are a curious second-year middle school boy named Kon Wataya, and his landlord and “bug” researcher Kasane Himesaki.
Nakatani launched the Bloom Into You (Yagate Kimi ni Naru) yuri manga in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh in April 2015, and ended it in September 2019. Kadokawa also released a comic anthology for the series, as well as a series of side story novels by Hitoma Iruma. Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the manga in North America, and shipped the manga’s eighth and final volume in August 2020. Seven Seas is also releasing Iruma’s novel series, and is also releasing the anthology book.
The manga inspired an anime adaptation that premiered in October 2018. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime, and HIDIVE streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan. A stage play adaptation also debuted in May 2019.
Nakatani has also drawn many yuri one-shot manga, and has so far appeared in five of the Éclair yuri manga anthology books that Yen Press has published. Yen Press is also publishing Nakatani’s earlier Farewell to My Alter (Sayonara Alter) manga.
