On Wednesday, manga artist Eito Chida confirmed in the authors' comments section for Square-Enix's Monthly Gangan JOKER magazine that the main manga version of P.A. Works' Hanasaku Iroha franchise is ending. The final chapter will run in the October issue on September 22.
The story centers around Ohana Matsumae, a 16-year-old Tokyo native who suddenly ends up working at a provincial hot spring inn after her mother flees town with a boyfriend to avoid debts.
Jun Sasameyuki's prequel manga series Hanasaku Iroha: Green Girls Graffiti ran on the Web Comic Gekkin site before it also ended earlier this year.
