Chi's Sweet Home Manga to End in 12th Volume
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The Kodansha Comic Plus website revealed that Kanata Konami's Chi's Sweet Home manga will end in the 12th volume slated to ship on June 23. The limited-edition volume will cost 3,800 yen (about US$32) and bundle an alarm clock that features the same voice of Chi heard in the anime adaptation.
Kodansha's Weekly Morning magazine announced earlier this month that the manga would appear in the magazine for ten consecutive weeks, starting with this year's 19th issue on April 9. The series returned from a nine-month hiatus in the same issue.
Chi's Sweet Home centers around a kitten who gets lost after walking out into the real world for the first time. A boy named Yōhei Yamada discovers her, but the Yamada family's apartment building prohibits pets. After failing to find a new home, the Yamadas decide to defy the rules and raise Chi themselves. Most of Chi's coming-of-age stories revolve around the Yamadas or the cats, dogs, and the occasional rabbit that live in the neighborhood.
Vertical licensed Chi's Sweet Home in 2009, and the company will release the 12th manga volume on August 18.
