The March issue of Kodansha's Magazine Special is announcing on Friday that Haruki Ueno's manga of Disney's animated movie Big Hero 6 will end on the following issue, which Kodansha will publish on March 20.
Haruki Ueno (Phi-Brain - Saigo no Puzzle, Exile Monogatari) launched the manga in Magazine Special on August 20, although the combined 36th/37th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine ran an "Episode 0" prologue on August 6. While Disney movies such as Tangled, Wall-E, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest have received one-shot manga adaptations, the manga was the first full-fledged series that previewed the actual story from a Disney movie before it opened worldwide.
The adventure story revolves around Hiro, a boy who lost his Dear Brother Tadashi in a mysterious accident, and Baymax, a robot developed by Tadashi. The story is set in San Fransokyo, a fictional city that combines the images of San Francisco and Tokyo.
Big Hero 6 opened in North America on November 7, and opened in Japan on December 19 (The movie is titled Baymax in Japan).
