posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Kadokawa Shoten's 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine is announcing on Monday that the magazine has halted publication as of the October issue. With the magazine's suspension, several four-panel manga series will be ending, including Suka's Sora no Kyūsoku manga, Purapa's G's Under Ground manga, and Sakyū Tottori's G-Sen Rough Sketch manga.
Chama's Aiura, Makoto Fujibayashi's Strike Witches Gekijōban: 501 Butai Hasshin Shimasu-!, and Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass) and Alpha Alf Layla's Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden manga will move magazines. Aiura will resume in the November issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Shōnen Ace magazine, Strike Witches Gekijōban in the December issue of Shōnen Ace, and Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden in the December issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine.
The magazine launched in 2011 with four-panel manga with tie-ins in other media such as anime and light novels. In the past, it has run Kagami Yoshimizu's Lucky Star manga, Puyo's The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan manga, Kitsune Tennouji's Upotte!! manga, and Keiichi Arawi's Nichijō manga. Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden is inspiring a movie, while Aiura inspired an anime earlier this year.
