House of Five Leaves/Ristorante Paradiso creator launched story in 2011

Natsume Ono's GB Park four-panel manga ended in the April issue of Takeshobo's Manga Life Original magazine on Monday. The slice-of-life manga debuted in the magazine in 2011.

The story focuses on a group of senior citizens who meet in a park to play gateball (sport similar to croquet). The final seven-page installment features a dentist who brings toothbrushes to the gateball players who are eating nothing but candy.

Natsume Ono's other works include the House of Five Leaves, Ristorante Paradiso, La Quinta Camera - 5 Banme no Heya, and Gente - Ristorante no Hitobito manga. Viz Media has released those manga in North America. Ristorante Paradiso received a television anime series adaptation in 2009, and a House of Five Leaves television anime adaptation followed in 2010. Right Stuf released the Ristorante Paradiso anime in North America, and NIS America released the House of Five Leaves adaptation.
