Insomniacs After School
Makoto Ojiro has written and illustrated the Japanese manga series, Insomniacs After School, published in the Weekly Big Comic Spirits manga magazine.
The manga series plot revolves around the small town of Nano, where the insomniac Ganta Nakami tries to take a nap in the school’s astronomical observatory, which has been abandoned. Ganta Nakami is cranky in class since he is unable to sleep at night. That’s why he is unpopular among his classmates.
There have been some serious dark rumors about the observatory and the astronomy club members, due to which the students keep away from here. As a result, it becomes a perfect place for Ganta to take a nap.
In the observatory, Ganta meets a carefree girl, Isaki Magari, who is also an insomniac; hence, both characters represent the series’ names. As a result, both these insomniacs tie an awkward friendship between them to establish the astronomy club.
On the other hand, the school faculty doesn’t permit any unsanctioned use of the observatory. However, the anime manga proceeds how these two insomniacs make this place their home.
The manga was illustrated in the manga magazine on May 20, 2017, while the first volume was released on September 12, 2019. By January 12, 2023, 11 volumes had already been released.
An anime TV series adaptation was earlier announced in January 2022. Liden Films is the anime series producer, while Yuki Ikeda is the director. The talented Rintaro Ikeda has written the scripts, and Yuki Fukuda has been handling the character designs. Finally, the music is composed by none other than Yuki Hayashi.
