The November issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine is confirming on Saturday that Masahiro Totsuka and Neko Sutajio's Bamboo Blade B manga will end in the next issue on November 12. Bamboo Blade B launched in 2009 as a spinoff of Totsuka and Aguri Igarashi's original Bamboo Blade manga.
The story follows Yū Ōkido, a tall, self-conscious middle-school girl who once practiced kendō (Japanese swordsmanship) in elementary school. The 11th volume of Bamboo Blade B shipped in Japan in May.
Yen Press released the original manga in North America and the final volume shipped last year. AIC A.S.T.A. adapted the manga into a television anime series in 2007-2008, and Funimation released the anime in North America. A second spinoff, Bamboo Blade C, launched in Monthly Big Gangan in May.
