From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and star of Netflix’s Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, this graphic novelization brings Kondo's life-changing tidying method to life with the fun, quirky story of a woman who transforms her home, work, and love life using Kondo's advice and inspiration.

Marie Kondo presents the fictional story of Chiaki, a young woman in Tokyo who struggles with a cluttered apartment, messy love life, and lack of direction. After receiving a complaint from her attractive next-door neighbor about the sad state of her balcony, Chiaki gets Kondo to take her on as a client. Through a series of entertaining and insightful lessons, Kondo helps Chiaki get her home--and life--in order. This insightful, illustrated case study is perfect for people looking for a fun introduction to the KonMari Method of tidying up, as well as tried-and-true fans of Marie Kondo eager for a new way to think about what sparks joy. Featuring illustrations by award-winning manga artist Yuko Uramoto, this book also makes a great read for manga and graphic novel lovers of all ages.

    Marie Kondo is my idol
  • Just read it

    By WilliamJr84
    So good and such a clever new take on the original book. Great little story hidden within the new rules explination.
  • In love!!

    This book is absolutely adorable! It’s about a 20-something year old who has a big pack rat problem (not unlike me) and konmarie comes to help her out. The Marie Kondo method seems a little odd and emotional, but it also seems that it could work for me, despite the fact that I share a room with my two little sisters!
  • So good!

    By Daphers715
    This was a really fun read. It was entertaining yet had good information. I’m also listening to one of her books while I’m driving which is good but I think you can get a similar experience with more entertainment value with this manga.
  • Absolutely love!

    I have both of Konmari’s books, but this manga was a great refresher to her books and made me appreciate her books all over again.
  • I couldn’t stop reading

    Many things in this manga related to me on a deep, personal level. I loved every single page, and to be quite honest, I’ll probably read this one or two more times. I just could not put it down. Marie Kondo is a VERY inspirational person. The journey I experienced with Chiaki, our very unorganized main character, and Konmari, who is Ms. Kondo, was one of (spark) joy and personal reflection.
