The April 2018 issue of Shueisha’s Cocohana magazine has announced that Mitsuba Takanashi’s Sumika Sumire manga series will have its final chapter in the next issue on March 28, 2018.
In the series, Sumi Kisaragi has always nursed her grandmother, father, and mother, and before she knows it she has turned 60 without ever knowing love. After her mother’s funeral she’s alone, but a shapeshifting cat appears and grants her wish to redo her youth. She is rejuvenated as the 17-year-old Sumire and returns to high school.
Takanashi launched the manga in August 2013 in Shueisha’s Cocohana magzine.
