Viz Media has licensed the manga and will release the second volume of the compiled book on June 20. The manga tells the story of two sleepless teenagers who find solace in the school’s astronomy observatory. Ganta Nakami, unable to sleep at night, becomes irritable and unpopular at school. He discovers that the observatory, previously used by the now-defunct astronomy club, is a perfect place for a nap. There, he meets Isaki Magari, and they both find comfort in each other while dealing with their insomnia.
