This year's 12th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine will announce on Friday that Hikaru Nakamura will end her Arakawa Under the Bridge comedy manga in the magazine's 14th issue, which Square Enix will publish on July 3.

The manga's story centers around an upper-class young man named Ko "Riku" Ichinomiya. He meets a beautiful homeless girl named Nino from the banks of Arakawa River, where many of Tokyo's most unusual residents live.

Nakamura (Saint Young Men) launched Arakawa Under the Bridge in Young Gangan in 2004. Square Enix published the manga's 14th compiled book volume in May 2014. The manga was adapted into a 13-episode TV anime series in April 2010, with a second 13-episode season airing on October of the same year titled Arakawa under the Bridge × Bridge. NIS America acquired the first and second seasons of the anime and released both on DVD and Blu-ray in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

The manga was also adapted into a live-action TV drama and film. The TV drama premiered in Japan in July 2011, while the film opened in Japan in February 2012.
