Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits magazine has revealed that Makoto Ojiro’s manga, Insomniacs After School (Kimi wa Hōkago Insomnia), will conclude in two upcoming chapters. The 35th issue of the magazine, set to be released on July 31, will feature the next chapter, with the series finale scheduled for the 125th chapter on August 7, barring any delays.
Insomniacs After School, which debuted in May 2019 in Big Comic Spirits, has gained popularity. The 13th compiled volume of the manga was published by Shogakukan on June 12, and fans can look forward to the 14th volume arriving in the autumn.
English readers will also have a chance to enjoy the series, as Viz Media has licensed the manga and plans to release the third compiled volume on September 19.
The story centers around two sleep-deprived teenagers who find solace in their school’s astronomy observatory. Ganta Nakami, often tired and unpopular among classmates due to his inability to sleep, stumbles upon the observatory, previously used by a disbanded astronomy club. In this unlikely setting, he encounters fellow insomniac Isaki Magari, and their friendship blossoms through their shared struggles.
The observatory carries dark rumors surrounding the former astronomy club, dissuading others from venturing there. However, for Nakami and Magari, it becomes a sanctuary for much-needed rest. Unfortunately, unauthorized use of the facility is forbidden by the school faculty. In their quest for a safe haven, the two protagonists entertain the idea of establishing a new astronomy club.
In addition to the manga, Insomniacs After School has been adapted into an anime series that premiered in Japan on April 10. The series was simulcast on HIDIVE as it aired in Japan. Notably, the music video for Macaroni Enpitsu’s song “Enshin” (Centrifuge), released in 2019, featured artwork from the manga.
To further expand its reach, the manga inspired a live-action film that premiered in Japan on June 23. Fans of the series can enjoy the story through various mediums, culminating in the upcoming conclusion of the manga.
