The manga is called Wata no Kunihoshi (in English, "The Star of Cottonland") and it is a shōjo manga by Yumiko Ōshima.

It's about a kitten girl named Chibi NeKo. I've read all the way to chapter six, and can't seem to find a chapter seven.

Do you have any information at all, regarding the continuation of the series or any adaptations it may have had in animation?

  • According to Wikipedia, the manga ran for seven volumes and there was an anime film of it. Unfortunately, since this is an older series, the manga was probably never officially released in English. Here's a blog from 2011 asking for an English release, which implies there hadn't been one up to that point. According to this column on Anime News Network, the anime was never released in English.

  • So there are more MaNgA chapters to Wata No Kunihoshi past the chp 6 that the site MangaHere has currently available??? Commented Jul 2, 2016 at 18:38
  • Yes, there are. Usually a volume contains 6-10 chapters, so seven volumes would mean there are 42-70 chapters. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any evidence the chapters had been translated. My guess is a scanlation group did the first volume and then gave up on it, which seems to happen with a lot of older manga.

  • I'm so happy to know that there are still chapters out there, would there be any way for me to get the series to get picked up by someone so that all 7 volumes can be completely translated??? Commented Jul 2, 2016 at 18:46
  • Or if anything a place where I can read the RAWS??? Commented Jul 2, 2016 at 18:47

Wata no Kunihoshi has a total of 24 chapters, divided in 7 volumes, which were published between 1978 and 1984. There was also a movie, released in 1984.

Fortunately, someone might have heard your request, and chapter 7 got a fan translation just a few days ago (August 10). I'm sure you can find it. Hopefully the rest gets translated too, at some point.
