Kaito's Cross Manage Lacrosse Manga to End on Monday
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will include the final chapter of KAITO's lacrosse manga series Cross Manage on Monday. The fourth compiled volume will ship in Japan in September and the fifth and final volume will ship in November. Shueisha's Jump Next! magazine will also publish a special chapter of the manga this fall that will focus on the secret of Misora's hair pin.
The series follows the story of aimless male student Sakurai, who meets Toyoguchi, the captain of the girls' lacrosse team. She recruits him as the team's manager, and her enthusiasm for the sport starts to win him over. Cross Manage premiered in English as part of Viz Media's Shonen Jump Alpha online anthology last October, Viz is publishing the manga simultaneously in English in the company's newly-renamed Shonen Jump digital anthology.
