Capeta is an award winning manga series about kart racing that slowly progresses into something grand: F1 racing. The anime ended midway, while the manga continued on until 2013, when its story was finished. So, if you just watched the show and are wondering where to start the Capeta manga after the anime, then this article is for you.
The Capeta anime and manga series tell the story of a motherless kid from a very poor family. He is too conservative and does not let his emotions or needs get in the way of his father or anyone else.
However, there was one thing he loved so much that he came out of his shell for once. That was cars. After being exposed to the world of kart racing, Capeta aims to become a professional racer and beat his all time rival.
Where do I start the Capeta manga after the anime?
If you asked true fans of the manga, they would ask you to start over because there is little difference between the anime and manga.
The last few anime episodes are very different from the manga, so we suggest starting with Chapter 30 (Volume 11, Chapter 3) of the Capeta manga.
This is the volume where Capeta and Shiba face off against each other in order to get a scholarship. But the anime skipped over several panels and bent the story a bit in this chapter, so this is the perfect chapter to start with.
For example, the anime skipped the part where Minamoto actually took part in the race along with Shiba and Capeta during the final selection race.
What chapter did the Capeta anime end in the manga?
Now, if you don’t mind a little inconsistency in the story and want to start the manga where the anime left off, then this section is for you.
The anime version of Capeta ends with Chapter 32 (Volume 12, Chapter 1) of the manga. But the anime has also shown parts of the manga up to chapter 35 (Volume 12, Chapter 4) in animated form. So, the story after Chapter 35 of the manga is completely new and has not been adapted into anime.
That said, it would be really confusing as the anime does not follow the manga’s plot chronologically. Which is why I recommend starting from Chapter 30 (Volume 11, Chapter 3).
