Shimotsuki's He is Diablo! ends; Girl Got Game's Seino begins Rabu Katsu!

The June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine announced last Friday that Jun Yuzuki will end her Gakuen Prince romantic comedy manga in the magazine's July issue. Gakuen Prince tells the story of the students of an elite high school where the male students are heavily outnumbered. Random House's Del Rey Manga imprint published the three of the 11 current manga volumes in North America in 2009. Last year, Kodansha USA announced it would gradually take over publishing duties for titles published by the imprint in North America, although it does not list Gakuen Prince among its planned titles.

Also in the June issue, Shizuru Seino began serialization on her new manga Rabu Katsu! (Love Win!, pictured at left). Tokyopop released Sieno's Girl Got Game, Love Attack and Heaven!! manga in North America. Rabu Katsu! is about a girl named Natsuo who transfers to a new high school and wishes to join the volleyball team. However, there are more than enough students (who all happen to be ikemen — good-looking males) in the club already. Ayahito Katsuma launched a romantic fantasy manga titled Tenshi no Kamaboko (Angel's Fishcake) about a demon prince who meets a fallen angel girl, and Akari began serialization on a gag manga titled Konchiwa Hamuko (Hello Hamuko) about an impudent hamster transfering into a school for animals.

The June issue also revealed that Kayoko Shimotsuki's Kare wa Diablo! (He is Diablo!) manga will end in the next issue. Finally, the July issue will see the start of Ruka Ichise's Hajimari no Natsu (The Summer When It Began) manga.
