This year's March issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Family announced on Saturday that Ema Toyama's Pocha-Pocha Suieibu (Pocha-Pocha Swimming Club) four-panel manga will end in the following issue on February 17.

Toyama began the series in 2010, and Houbunsha will ship the fourth compiled volume in April. The story follows Katsuyo, the spirited daughter of a family that runs a tonkatsu restaurant. She loves to eat and is a little bit plump. She decides to join her high school's girls' swim club even though she's not very good at exercise.

North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics publishes Toyama's Manga Dogs and the award-winning Missions of Love (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) in English. Kodansha also released I Am Here! and Shugo Chara-chan!. Tokyopop previously published Toyama's Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho manga.
