The beginning of Crimson Hero's final story arc and the last installment of Chocolate Underground will run in the July issue of Bessatsu Margaret shōjo manga magazine, which will ship on June 13. The magazine is promising that Mitsuba Takanashi will start the anticipated ending for the Crimson Hero volleyball manga after 12 compiled volumes. Viz Media has published eight of those volumes in North America so far, after the title ran in the premiere issue of Shojo Beat magazine.
In the same Bessatsu Margaret issue, Aiji Yamakawa will end the Chocolate Underground manga adaptation of Alex Shearer's Bootleg novel. Production I.G. plans to stream its Chocolate Underground anime version to mobile phones and computers early this summer. Both the manga and anime adapt Shearer's English novel about two boys who bootleg chocolate in a repressive country with anti-sweets laws.
