Haruto Hino’s Takunomi manga made its début on Shogakukan’s MangaONE app in August 2015. To date, four compiled volumes have been released, with the latest shipping to retailers on August 10.

Sentai Filmworks describes Takunomi as:

‘Takunomi‘ follows the story of Michiru Amatsuki, a 20-year-old woman who just moved to Tokyo to change jobs. She lives in apartment 101 of Stella House Haruno, an all-female boarding house. There, she meets other women of different ages, jobs, and personalities. They all have something in common though: their love for good food and drinks.
