“If you enjoy the absurd or like being reminded that life can be entertaining even when it seems boring, this is the manga for you…” – AiPT Comics

Some changes are coming to the CITY—with Ecchan departing for good and Nagumo finally ready to pay Granny back (if she’ll accept the money), things won’t be the same around the neighborhood.
Meanwhile, Captain Obina agrees to a soccer shootout with the fate of Gongenyama hanging in the balance, an unexpected prize-winning photograph creates another unexpected celebrity, and even the mysterious creatures living in the sewers don’t know what to make of a bizarre newcomer.

Riko Izumi is about to go on the greatest adventure of her life—and she won’t even remember it! Tatewaku’s crush gets him into hot water, cold water, and every kind in between as he tries to keep her safe, and maybe even get her to reciprocate his feelings.
Love! Friendship! Death! Robots! Pirates! Extraterrestrial cephalopods! Pop songs! Welcome to the most epic volume of CITY ever, at least since the last one. Keiichi Arawi takes us out of the CITY and on a high-seas adventure that no one will ever forget (except Riko).
Book 10
From Keiichi Arawi, the creator of hit series nichijou, comes a new slapstick comedy series about a penniless college student who moves to a town filled with bizarre people. This reckless girl will be the one who eventually sets the city in motion.


Summer is in full swing, and Nagumo is as desperate as ever to make a buck. Makabe’s is closed, so apart from an appearance in Troupe Tekaridake’s latest masterwork, she’s got no source of income—and no choice but to turn to the internet. With Niikura behind the camera, what could go wrong? But Nagumo’s public humiliation leads to some unexpected reunions…

Summer in the CITY doesn’t mean lazy days for everyone, however: Class 2-3’s make-up exam is postponed indefinitely as they devote their energy to a Guinness world record, the Surprising Shogi championship grips fans with its preposterous thrills, and Wako joins forces with Kamaboko Oni to save “Mr. Bummer” from the threat of cancellation.
Need a vacation from normal life? Why not spend summer in the CITY?

The big race is over, and everything is back to “normal” in the CITY—as normal as it ever gets, anyway: Shia attempts to simultaneously take the advertising world by storm and annoy her way into Tatsuta Adatara’s heart, the City Three Crows continue their ongoing quest for the perfect summer vacation, and Tatewaku, Matsuri, and Ecchan tackle the impossible challenge of finding a band name that isn’t already taken.

Meanwhile, Nagumo’s endless quest for cash takes her through various games of skill and chance: a watermelon seed-spitting contest, bobbing for gold bars at the summer festival, even the 7th Annual CITY Quiz Championship.
We’ve got spies, we’ve got love (or is it like?), we even have the perils of…THE BOUTIQUE?! We’ve got it all here in the CITY—where nothing is ever as normal as it seems.
Book 8

The big day is finally here: The 4th Local City Race is upon us! Eight pairs will enter, each more absurd and unexpected than the last, but only one will emerge victorious to claim the 1-million-yen prize. All of CITY’s heavy hitters are here: Nagumo, Granny, Dr. Adatara, the Self-Proclaimed Quiz King… Wait, what?! Who even is that??! And why weren’t the rest of us allowed to enter???!
The scattershot charm of Keiichi Arawi’s masterpiece comes together with laser focus to bring you the biggest, craziest, funniest volume of CITY yet!

Niikura reveals her shameful midnight snacking habits even as she tortures Nagumo with unwanted ghost stories, while on the plus side, Nagumo’s rent problems may finally be solved when an Edo-period bandit comes to the rescue?!
The soccer team’s roster of stupendous characters still can’t win a game, the barber makes an accidental fortune and loses it again, Wako resists manga stardom, everyone in town has a crush on her little sister Riko, and the mysterious quadrennial CITY race approaches…

Book 6
From Keiichi Arawi, the creator of hit series nichijou, comes a new slapstick comedy series about a penniless college student who moves to a town filled with bizarre people. This reckless girl will be the one who eventually sets the city in motion.

Nagumo is in a bit of a bind. She’s a college student, and like many people in her situation, is struggling with money. She is in debt and her landlord is trying to shake her down for rent. Asking her friends no longer works! They know her deal and they do not have the cash to prop her up, even temporarily.

So what is she supposed to do under these circumstances? Well maybe bullying would help. Maybe petty theft? Neither one is realistic. Maybe getting a job would settle things… But that means working and not having fun in the big city. That also means not spending all your earnings before paying your rent.

Life in the city is an adventure. Thankfully its a fruitful and entertaining one at that!
