Kaoru Tada told husband of unfinished manga's ending before fatal accident

The Mainichi Shimbun paper interviewed music producer Shigeru Nishikawa about the ongoing anime adaptation of his late wife Kaoru Tada's unfinished shōjo manga classic, Itazura na Kiss. Nishikawa says that Tada told him in January of 1999 that "I think I'll end [the manga] this year." She slipped into a coma after a home accident in February of that year and died the following month.

However, Nishikawa added that Tada told him her plot for the manga's finale, and her concept will be the basis for the anime scripts. While Nishikawa emphasized that the manga and anime are distinct from each other, he revealed that the anime will be the first time that the concepts for Tada's planned ending will be provided to fans in any form.

Unlike many other popular manga, Itazura na Kiss followed its romantic leads, the spirited Kotoko and "super-ikemen" (handsome male) Naoki, from high school all the way through their early adult life. It is considered the "bible of romance" for shōjo manga due to its influence on later authors. The anime began in April of this year.

Oh my god, I'm so happy! =D

The drama versions of the manga never had the ending concept!

This is so exciting! Now I have something to look forward to!

Even though it's planned to have 26 episodes, I hope it's extended!

I was saddened when I found out that the creator of Itazura na Kiss died... Well, I hope her husband will continue his late wife's legacy....
