The anime is predicated on the Tonikaku Kawaii manga sequence by Kenjiro Hata. Launched in February 2018, the weekly manga is already properly over 100 chapters lengthy and has been collected into 21 volumes as of September 15, 2022.

The TONIKAWA Volume 16 cowl artwork was particularly controversial because it was utterly sudden for a rom-com sequence. Since the duvet artwork comprises main spoilers you will want to click on this hyperlink to be able to see it.

The manga has stood out from opponents within the crowded romcom market largely because the premise begins with the 2 characters married but feeling like digital strangers. Thus, there’s much less pressured drama and anime audiences received’t be ready round for a number of seasons simply to see if the principle characters ever declare their love for one another.

Instead, there may be the bigger thriller of who precisely Tsukasa Tsukuyomi is in relation to Princess Kaguya in The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. Without stepping into spoilers, the opening episode/chapter hints that one thing is off.

Later episodes present a “16-year-old” Tsukasa rescuing a younger Chitose… and but years later Tsukasa remains to be 16 when she registered her marriage?

Tsukasa’s information of historic trivia is off the charts regardless of having zero curiosity in sightseeing historic landmarks and she will learn historic languages and wield a katana. She frequently makes feedback and references like an older particular person.

During the journey to go to Nasa’s dad and mom in Nara, she even makes whimsical feedback like, “Despite a thousand years passing by, the form of the mountains by no means change, surprisingly…”

Even Tsukasa’s final title Tsukuyomi is a part of the thriller because it actually is the title of the Japanese god of the moon. What’s extra, lots of the manga chapters have intro panels that includes Tsukasa touring in unique areas… which regularly appear to be set within the distant previous!

But that central thriller most likely received’t be resolved shortly. In reality, even when the anime is renewed for a number of seasons we most likely received’t obtain a stable reply even in TONIKAWA Season 3.

TONIKAWA manga followers have been significantly happy by the anime adaptation, which has been very trustworthy to the supply materials. For many of the first season, it’s virtually a panel-by-panel adaptation with solely minor tweaks right here and there (generally the anime enhanced the jokes with visible gags).

The final a number of episodes rearranged some occasions and there may be some skipped content material but it surely’s often solely minor scenes. For instance, in Episode 5 Nasa is working at his job and he involves the self-realization that he solely began the job so he may discover his spouse. But when he asks his boss if he may stop the latter man cries out, “No! I’d go bankrupt with out you!”

Here is a information to how the episodes have been tailored.

  • TONIKAWA Episode 2 Chapters 5 – 8
  • TONIKAWA Episode 3: Chapters 8 – 11

Despite being hilarious, it’s not shocking they didn’t make the reduce contemplating the primary one, Chapter 2.5, broke the fourth wall and brazenly mentioned how readers don’t need a married couple as protagonists and that they’d fairly be studying Hayate 2.

Tonikaku Kawaii MangaEpisode 5 was the primary time any kind of content material was modified.

Due to the weirdness of the ending, the finale, TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You Episode 12, discovered a stopping level in manga Volume 9. In order to keep up the continuity, some plot factors have been eliminated, and when Tsukasa and Nasa attended the competition (Chapter 80) a number of the dialogue was shifted over from the chilly story (Chapters 88 and 89).

Manga readers who want to learn forward of the anime ought to soar to Volume 5, which comprises chapters 39 by 48. The greatest start line for TONIKAWA Season 2 can be Chapter 43 because it has Nasa and Tsukasa going to the aquarium as their first official date as a married couple.
