Momoko Sakura relaunched manga as 4-panel manga after original magazine version

The Tokushima Shimbun paper announced on Sunday that the four-panel version of the Chibi Maruko-chan manga will end after over 1,500 installments on December 31. Momoko Sakura launched this version in Japanese newspapers on July 1, 2007, after creating the manga as a regular magazine-serialized work in Shueisha's Ribon shōjo manga magazine from 1986 to 1996.

The original manga inspired the Chibi Maruko-chan television series that is consistently the #2 rated anime series after Sazae-san.
