Zetsubou-Sensei's Kumeta to End Sekkachi Hakushaku to Jikan Dorobō Manga in 7 Parts
posted on by Kyle Cardine
This year's 47th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine will announce on Wednesday that Kôji Kumeta (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Joshiraku, The Eccentric Family character design) will end his Sekkachi Hakushaku to Jikan Dorobō (The Impatient Count & the Time Thief) manga in seven parts. The first part ended in the 46th issue of the magazine, which shipped on October 15. The second part, which is only one chapter, will end on Wednesday.
The third part will begin in the magazine's next issue when it is released on October 29. It was not confirmed if the following parts will also end in one chapter.
The manga began in the magazine last year. The magazine described the story:
An unknown, tall-hatted noble. A lovely and beautiful high-class lady. A competitive and energetic high school girl. These three mismatched people each aim for one place, each with different reasons. Who is the man who waits for them there? Kôji Kumeta writes a new world filled with glee and wonder!
Kodansha published the series' fourth compiled volume in Japan on September 17.
Kumeta ended his other series Joshiraku last year. He ended his Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei manga in the same magazine in May 2012, then drew a one-shot manga in the Shitauke Tantei Nokori Kazuhiro Series that same year.
