About Gokinjo Monogatari


Gokinjo Monogatari (ご近所物語, lit. Neighorbood Story) is a Japanese manga series by Ai Yazawa. It was previously serialized in Ribon from 1995 to 1997, and published by Shueisha into seven volumes. The manga was reprinted in 2005 featuring different covers. The story centers around Mikako Kouda and her friends, they all go to Yazawa School for the Arts and start a group called Akindo together.

A fifty-episode anime series was adapted from the manga and followed by a short film that retells the beginning of the story. Also a series of light novels titled, Gokinjo Monogatari: Fashionable Love Story were published from 1995 to 1998, and an artbook, Welcome to the Gokinjo World in 1997.

Characters from Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai make cameos in Gokinjo, most notably Ken Nakagawa, who looks strikingly similar to Tsutomu. Yazawa's later work, Paradise Kiss continues the story of Gokinjo Monogatari, but can also be considered a stand-alone sequel. Many characters such as Mikako and Tsutomu reappear, and other characters like Miwako Sakurada are focused on more. Read more...
