Cocoa Fujiwara's manga entered final arc last January

The February issue of Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Cocoa Fujiwara's Inu × Boku SS and Sōichirō's Rose Gun Days Season 1 manga will end in the following issue on February 22.

Fujiwara confirmed in December that Inu × Boku SS would end this year. The manga entered its final arc this past January.

Fujiwara's romantic comedy manga follows a mistress and her "servant" (bodyguard) in Maison de Ayakashi, a high-class building better known by the name "Demon House (Ayakashi-kan)." Rumors about it abound, ranging from "nothing but weirdos live there," to "It's a haunted house inside," but the truth is that the people who live in this mysterious building are all descendants of demons. Ririchiyo Shirakiin is troubled by her inability to interact with people, and comes to the building in order to change herself. There she meets Soushi Miketsukami, one of the Secret Service bodyguards assigned to each tenant, and he tells her, "Please make me your dog!"

Fujiwara launched the manga in Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine in 2009, and the publisher released the 10th compiled volume in Japan in October. Yen Press plans to release the second volume on January 22.

Rose Gun Days is based on Ryukishi07 (Higurashi: When They Cry, Umineko When They Cry) original game. Sōichirō served as the character designer for the original game before launching the manga in 2012. The third compiled volume shipped last month.

The story which takes place in Japan after World War II. Devastated in the aftermath of defeat, the Japanese government complies with the Allies' reconstruction plan. Japan begins to recover from the loss after a few years, but America and China intricately divide control of the nation on a municipal level. The many Chinese and American immigrants make Japanese people the minority in their own land.

A girl named Rose Haibara works at the club Primavera and lends money to Japanese people so that they can rebuild their lives. Some people take advantage of that generosity. Meanwhile, Leo Shishigami is best known for his reputation among women. Everything begins to change when that legendary man meets Rose in the spring of 1947.

A separate prologue manga by Mei Renjōji has been running in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Sirius magazine.
