News Princess Jellyfish's Higashimura to End Kakukaku Shikajika Manga
posted on 2014-12-27 23:30 EST
The March 2015 issue of Shueisha's Cocohana magazine will publish the final chapter of Akiko Higashimura's Kakukaku Shikajika manga on January 28.
The semi-autobiographical series tells the story of Akiko Hayashi, a third-year high school girl who wants to be a manga artist.
Higashimura began the series in the debut issue of Cocohana, the relaunch of Shueisha's women's magazine Chorus, in November 2011. Shueisha shipped the fourth compiled volume in July.
Higashimura's Kuragehime manga inspired the 2010 Princess Jellyfish television anime series, which Funimation released in North America. She is also currently writing Tokyo Tarareba-jō for Kodansha's Kiss and will write a series in Shogakukan's Hibana when the magazine launches in March. Her earlier series Omo ni Naitemasu inspired a live-action television series in 2012.
