All Esper Dayo! Manga to End in 4 Chapters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Kiminori Wakasugi announced on his official Twitter account on Tuesday that he will end his All Esper Dayo! (Minna! Esper Dayo!) manga in four chapters. He also announced the release dates of the manga's seventh and eighth (and final) compiled book volume. Kodansha will release the seventh volume on August 6, and the eighth and final volume in September.
The psychic comedy follows an ordinary (virgin) high school boy named Yoshirō "Yocchan" Kamogawa (Sometani). His life changes overnight when he wakes up with the ability to read other people's minds. Yoshirō is not the only one to gain powers in his town. Terumitsu Nagano (played by Mikata Sports), an (apparently virgin) worker at a café near Yoshirō's school, gains telekinesis — but he uses it for Sex Toys. Yōsuke Enomoto (played by Motoki Fukami), a (probably virgin) senior and former basketball player at Yoshirō's high school, gains teleportation — but only while naked.
A live-action drama adaptation of the manga premiered in April 2013 as a series of 12-minute episodes. A live-action spinoff television special titled Minna! Esper Dayo! Bangaihen ~Esper, Miyako e Iku~ (All Esper Dayo! Extra Edition ~The Esper Goes to the Capital~) aired in Japan on April 3.
Wakasugi launched the manga in Weekly Young Magazine in 2009, shortly before he ended the popular comedy Detroit Metal City the following year. Kodansha published the sixth compiled volume of Minna! Esper Dayo! in February 2014. Wakasugi launched a new arc of the manga in Young Magazine this spring.
