Insomniacs After School Plot
Fans are always in constant search of new manga and/or anime. When we find one such good manga, we wonder, ‘why isn’t there an anime adaptation of such a good series?’ However, for fans who have read Kimi wa Houkago Insomnia, the wait is over. This manga series will now have its anime adaptation. But before that, do we know the plot of this series?
The story is set in Noto City, Ishikawa Prefecture, where Ganta Nokomi is a high school boy suffering from insomnia. He meets Isaki, one of his classmates who has the same problem as Nakami. They both suffer from insomnia where they cannot sleep at night and then have severe headaches at noon. The school’s Astronomy club, which has been closed for a long time, becomes their secret base, where they can nap without anyone interfering. Their relationship starts with a little secret of theirs and with each little moment they share.
Nakami is studious but a bit cranky and antisocial due to his severe headache during noon. Because of his insomnia, he comes out as a rude kid to his classmates. During the school festival, when he was asked to bring card boxes from the storage room, which was once the Astronomy club, he intended to take a nap instead because the room felt so comfortable. There he met Isaki, who was sleeping like a dead person, but stormed out when she saw Nakami. Both locked in the room, Nakami and Isaki had a conversation.
Wondering “what’s the deal with the Astronomy club?” The astronomy club of Nakami’s high school was quite popular in the back ages. However, a girl fell in love with a boy from the basketball club. Knowing that her love wouldn’t work out, she committed suicide. One of the boys from the Astronomy club, who was in love with her, always gazed upon the stars even after several warnings from the club instructor. He committed suicide too, leaving a note behind where it says that he is going to the girl who has been calling for him from the Moon. Well, this is what is known about the ‘rumored’ ghost as of yet, so let’s not get scared beforehand.
