The manga creator who goes by the name "Oh! great" (Ōgure-Ito) will be ending his Tenjho Tenge action series in the September issue of Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine on August 19. DC Comics' CMX Manga imprint published 18 of the 21 current volumes in edited form in North America before shutting down earlier this month. The manga inspired a 2004 television anime series (which Geneon Entertainment released in English), as well as a television special and a video sequel.
Takayuki Yamaguchi has ended his samurai manga Shigurui in the September issue of Akita Shoten's Monthly Champion Red magazine on Saturday. The manga adapted part of Norio Nanjo's historical novel Suruga-Jō Gozen Jiai, and the 2007 Shigurui: Death Frenzy television anime series in turn adapted the manga's story. Funimation released the anime in North America. The 15th and final volume of the manga will ship in Japan on October 20, but there will be an "important announcement" in the next issue of Monthly Champion Red on August 19.
Manga creator Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King, Ultimo) has launched his new main Jumbor battle action manga series in the current issue of Ultra Jump on Saturday. Takei had originally serialized his Jumbor Barutronica (Jūki Ningen Jumbor) manga for just 10 weeks in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2007. He then drew a one-shot story in the November issue of Ultra Jump last year, followed by another short story in the March issue this year. Shueisha has compiled all of these previous Jumbor stories into a two-volume keepsake edition, which will ship on August 4.
Takeshi Nogami (Panzer fräulein ALTESEISEN) is moving his Sailor-fuku to Jūsensha manga from Akita Shoten's Champion Red Ichigo magazine to the main Champion Red magazine as of the October issue on August 19.
