This year's 39th issue of Shueisha's Shonen Jump magazine has confirmed on Monday that Saki Hasemi and Kentaro Yabuki's To Love-Ru -Trouble- manga will end its serialization in the next issue on August 31. The three most recent compiled book volumes of the science-fiction romantic comedy manga have bundled original anime DVDs in special editions. A television anime series aired last year.
Jiro Matsumoto has ended his Freesia action manga in the October issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine on Tuesday. Freesia revolves around an ordinary-looking man named Hiroshi Kano who happens to be slowly going insane. New laws in Japan allow people to hire Kano to carry out vengeance killings by proxy. A live-action film was made in 2007.
Kazuo Hara has also ended his Noramimi manga in the October issue of Monthly Ikki. Noramimi depicts the life of a hapless mascot character who is stuck at his talent agency — no one wants to hire him to babysit their children. TMS Entertainment produced two television anime seasons in 2008.
Monthly Ikki's current issue has launched a new manga called Shanghai Charlie by Bibuo. The next issue will feature the return of Shunju Aono's I'll Give It My All...Tomorrow manga, which Viz Media is releasing in English on its new Sigikki website.
