Yuuki Iinuma launched a manga based on Hiroyuki Nishimori’s Manten no Hoshi to Aoi Sora (The Starry Heavens and the Blue Sky) novel in the September 2018 issue of Shogakukan’s Monthly Sunday GX magazine on August 18, 2018.
The manga’s story focuses on Shingo Nakazawa, a high school boy who remains emotionless, even as the rest of humanity is coming to grips with the possibility of extinction due to the approach of a world-ending meteor. In the beginning of the story, Japan thinks itself saved from disaster, only to face another one.
Iinuma previously collaborated with Nishimori on their Nanimo nai Kedo Sora wa Aoi (There’s Nothing, But the Sky is Blue) manga, which is also related to the Manten no Hoshi to Aoi Sora novel. The pair launched the manga in March 2014, and ended it after seven volumes.
