Sayonara Cramer Wiki

Sayonara Cramer (さよなら私のクラマー Good-bye, Cramer) is a manga series, the sequel to Sayonara, Football. It is written and illustrated by the mangaka Naoshi Arakawa, who previously authored Your Lie in April. The manga focuses on girls' soccer in Japan.


The series begins with a middle school girl’s soccer match, where short-haired fifteen year old Sumire Suou shows off her overwhelming talent, but during a counterattack, her beautiful dribble to her shot at the goal gets blocked by a twin-tailed girl named Midori Soshizaki, ending the game.

With their middle school soccer careers over, these two rivals, Sumire and Midori, rather than going to a powerhouse school with a well-known girls soccer team, choose to attend Warabi Seinan High School, whose girls soccer team has never made it out of the qualifiers. There they meet the odd, if not overconfident, Nozomi Onda. Going on to play in a scrimmage game, they all must now work together on the same team if they are to succeed.[1]


Sayonara Cramer began in the June 2016 issue of Monthly Shōnen Magazine, published on May 6, 2016. The series ended with 14 volumes in the January 2021 issue of Monthly Shōnen Magazine, that shipped on December 4, 2020.

Farewell, My Dear Cramer is the offical English Translation.

The manga has been simultaneously released in English on Kindle and Comixology. Crunchyroll published the manga starting in 2018. In July 2019, Kodansha Comics announced the print release of the manga. The first volume was released on January 26, 2021.

The digital version of the manga has released 13 volumes while the physical version has released 4 volumes.

  • The Cramer in the title refers to Dettmar Cramer [2] who was a German football player and coach. He is considered to be the father of modern football in Japan. He died a few days before the manga's first chapter so Naoshi Arakawa named the series "Sayonara Watashi no Cramer" as a tribute to continue growing Japanese football.
