Oya-san to Boku Manga to Return After the Passing of the Lead Character’s Real-Life Inspiration

Shinchosha’s Daily Shincho website has announced that Tarō Yabe will resume his Oya-san to Boku (Landlady and Me) essay manga after the manga went on hiatus in August 2018 following the the death of Yabe’s elderly landlady, the subject of the manga.

Yabe said in a message that starting the manga again was “painful but enjoyable, and lonely but happy.” He said that his landlady had once said to him that talking to him made her feel like she was able to see her departed friends and family once again, so he would be glad if he could similarly meet his landlady again by drawing the manga.

The manga is based on his real life experiences with his landlady.
