The official Twitter account for Kadokawa Shoten's Shonen Ace magazine announced on Wednesday that Takashi Tsukimi's Danganronpa - Kibō no Gakuen to Zetsubō Kōkōsei and Ranmaru Kotone and Noriko Ogiwara's Red Data Girl manga series ended in the magazine's September issue on Saturday.

The Danganronpa - Kibō no Gakuen to Zetsubō Kōkōsei manga launched in 2013, and Tsukimi drew the art for the adaptation of Spike Chunsoft's video game. The fourth compiled volume will ship in Japan on August 26.

The story follows a group of high school students, each with a different exceptional talent, who are locked inside a school and told that the only way to escape is to kill another student without getting caught. After a murder, the remaining students must hold a trial with their lives on the line to find out who the killer is.

Funimation streamed Danganronpa as it aired in Japan in 2013. A stage play is also currently in production. NIS America released the original Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Playstation Vita game in February and will ship Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair this fall for the Playstation Vita.

Ranmaru Kotone launched the adaptation of Noriko Ogiwara's original Red Data Girl light novel series in 2012. The modern fantasy story revolves around Izumiko, a girl raised within the confines of Tamakura Shrine, one of the Kumano shrines that are part of a World Heritage site. However, after Izumiko spent practically her entire life at Kumano until middle school, she wants to become a normal girl. It was decided that she and her childhood friend Miyuki would enroll in Hōjō High School in Tokyo. On a school trip to Tokyo, a mysterious entity known as Himegami appears and a terrible incident occurs. Izumiko's family carries a great secret that Izumiko is about to learn.

The manga's fourth compiled volume shipped in Japan in April. Funimation streamed the anime series in 2013 and released it on home video with an English dub in June.
