Chibisan Date (ちびさんデイト Chibisan Deito) is a manga by Hidekaz Himaruya that began serialization in Comic Birz starting with the April 2009 issue. After going on an unannounced hiatus in late 2010, the series was relaunched in the first issue of Comic Spica in October 2011, and was completed in the April 2013 issue. The series is supplemented by a small amount of web content.

The series is a slice of life manga that focuses on Seiji Chiga and his daily life on the crescent shaped island of Nantucket. The series is named for the character Chibisan, who serves as the series' mascot despite there being little information known about her background and relationships with the other characters.

In 2010, the published manga was licensed by Tokyopop in North America and the first chapter was previewed in the second volume of Hetalia: Axis Powers. Three months before the first volume was scheduled to be released, the company ceased US publishing operations.


It focuses on Seiji; a young Japanese artist, who currently lives on the crescent-shaped island of Nantucket. The story follows his daily life and the people who live there as well.
