As the fall season sets in, there’s nothing quite like snuggling up with a cozy blanket and a cup of warm coffee while immersing yourself in a heartwarming romance manga. In the case of “Sasaki and Miyano” by Shō Harusono, you might want to trade that blanket and coffee for a tank top and lemonade, but the warm and fuzzy feeling remains.
This endearing story of blossoming romance between two teenagers has become one of the most prominent BL (Boys’ Love) manga of recent times. Not only does it have a captivating manga series, but it also boasts an anime adaptation and even a film adaptation, offering fans multiple ways to enjoy this heartwarming tale.
For a while, fans were concerned that “Sasaki and Miyano” had been discontinued, but the good news is that the series is back. The author, Shō Harusono, took an unexpected year-long hiatus, but both the writer and her editor have confirmed the return of “Sasaki and Miyano,” coinciding with the release of “Sasaki and Miyano: Graduation.”
With the release of a new chapter, fans can catch up on “Sasaki and Miyano,” and there are several options for where to read it. The digital English translation of the manga is available through YenPress, with the first volume priced at $6.99 US on various platforms, including Amazon, Kobo, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble, Book Walker, comiXology, and Google Play.
If you prefer the paperback version, YenPress lists the first volume at a reseller’s price of $13.00 US, available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indigo, Kinokuniya, and Right Stuf Anime.
It’s worth noting that the manga is currently available up to volume eight in English. To access new chapters beyond this point, you may need to wait for the English translation or purchase them directly from the original Japanese publisher, Gene Pixiv, and utilize a translation app to read them.
In addition to the manga, fans can also find the anime series and the new feature film on Crunchyroll, offering multiple avenues to dive into the world of “Sasaki and Miyano.”
