Mitsuda ended his Major baseball manga after a 16-year run in 2010

This year's ninth issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine included the final chapter of Takuya Mitsuda's Buyuden boxing manga on Wednesday. Mitsuda explained that the manga is ending due to poor sales. Shogakukan will publish the 12th compiled book volume on February 18, and the 13th and final volume on March 18.

Mitsuda launched the series in March 2011. The story follows a bored honors student who discovers and becomes devoted to boxing.

Mitsuda ended his Major manga series in 2010 after a 16-year run. The manga inspired its first television anime series in 2004, and the sixth television anime series ended in 2010. The manga also inspired two original anime videos and an anime film.
