posted on by Egan Loo
Kodansha's Comic Bonbon magazine announced the fate of its various manga titles in its last issue (the December issue, on sale November 15). The second to last issue (the November issue, on sale October 15) had previously announced that Takuya Fujima's Negima!? neo spinoff to Ken Akamatsu's original Negima! Magister Negi Magi magic school manga would continue in issue 2 (on sale January 19) of the Magazine Special manga magazine. This magazine is itself a spinoff from Weekly Shonen Magazine. Also as previously announced, the Umi no Tairiku NOA + manga will continue under the name Umi no Tairiku NOA x on the online manga distribution site MiChao! at the end of November.
The anime tie-in manga of Gegege no Kitarō: Yōkai Sen Monogatari (Gegege no Kitarō: A Thousand Ghost Stories), Deltora Quest, Mobile Suit Gundam Alive, and SD Gundam: Full-Color Gekijō (SD Gundam: Full-Color Theater) will continue in a special manga edition of Terebi Magazine (TV Magazine) next spring. SD Gundam Sangokuden (SD Gundam: The Legend of the Three Kingdoms) will finish its run in a compiled volume with added material. Kodansha is planning a new magazine called Monthly Shōnen Rival in April, but its manga titles have not been announced.
