Solanin (Japanese: ソラニン) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Inio Asano. It was serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Young Sunday from 2005 to 2006. In North America, the manga was licensed for English language release by Viz Media.
The manga was adapted into a live-action film directed by Takahiro Miki and starring Aoi Miyazaki as Meiko Inoue. Meiko is a recent college grad working at an office job she hates. Her boyfriend Shigeo is permanently crashing at her apartment because his job as a freelance illustrator doesn't pay enough for rent. And her parents in the country keep sending her boxes of veggies that just rot in her fridge. Straddling the line between her years as a student and the rest of her life, Meiko struggles with the feeling that she's just not cut out to be a part of the real world.
