The February 2015 issue of Shinshokan's Wings magazine announced on Saturday that Chigusa Kawai's Alice the 101st manga will end in the April issue on February 28. Kawai launched the manga in 2007, and Shinshokan released the eighth compiled volume in Japan in June.
Digital Manga Publishing has released four volumes of the series in North America. The publisher describes the story:
Mondonville Music Academy attracts thousands of elite musician applicants from around the world, but only 100 students are accepted into the program each year. But this year, Alistair Lang-who has no formal music training and is unable to even read a music score-is somehow accepted into the program as the 101st student! His classmates wonder how he even made it into the program, and proceed to treat him like an outcast, calling him, "the 101st". One day, during a violin lesson, Alistair steps up and begins to play his violin...
Digital Manga also released all seven volumes of Chigusa's La Esperança manga, as well as her one-volume I Want to Bite (Kamitsukitai) vampire yaoi light novel with author Isaya Takamori.
