Gag comedy manga ends after having just begun on September 13

This year's 49th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has published the final installment of Yoshio Sawai's Chagecha gag comedy manga — a mere eight weeks after the series started. It is unusual for a new series from a creator of another popular manga (Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo) to have such a quick, unplanned ending. Weekly Shonen Jump serialized Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo from 2001 to 2007. Chagecha had just begun on September 13, but readers noted that Chagecha quickly moved from the front half of the magazine to the back half. A manga titles's position in a magazine's pages is often an indication of its relative popularity among the other titles.

Viz Media published selected stories from Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo in North America, and the Cartoon Network's Toonami programming block ran the television anime version between 2005 and 2007.
