then compiled in nine tonkobon volumes and one spin-off story volume. It was adapted into a 12 TV anime series animated by MAPPA and Tezuka Production that aired in Japan from April to June 2012.

“As it has been already reported on the news sites and other media, Sakamichi no Apollon will get its live-action film adaptation. It fortunately has a wonderful staff and cast. Just as one audience, I am looking forward to the completion of the film.”
