Racing tournament manga by creator "Oh! great" (Ōgure-Ito) inspired TV anime
This year's 19th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the manga creator "Oh! great" (Ōgure-Ito) is ending his Air Gear racing tournament series in five more chapters.
The manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2002. Del Rey published up to the manga's 17th volumes in North America, although Kodansha Comics has since taken over the series as of the 18th volume. Kodansha Comics is publishing the 23rd of the 35 current volumes in North America this month.
ADV Films had once released Toei's 2006 television anime version of Air Gear in North America, and Funimation released the television anime on DVD and on the web. There are also several original anime DVDs in Japan.
