Nichijō Manga to End in December With 10th Volume
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The October issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Keiichi Arawi's Nichijō manga will end this year with the manga's 10th volume, which will ship in Japan on December 10. Kadokawa will also publish a special edition of the volume on the same day, which will include a special booklet featuring unpublished "episodes" from the manga. The special edition will cost 980 yen (about US$8). The pre-order deadline for the special edition is September 17.
The comedy manga revolves around a group of female students living what would be a normal high school life, except that it also includes a talking cat, a robot, deer-wrestling, and other strange anomalies. Arawi launched the series as a short manga in Monthly Shonen Ace in 2006 before launching the main manga later that year. The manga also ran in Kadokawa's Comptiq and 4-Koma Nano Ace magazines.
Vertical Comics will release the manga in English starting in spring 2016.
The manga inspired a TV anime in 2011, which Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan. Bandai Entertainment licensed the series for home video before it ceased offering new releases, and cancelled the home video release of Nichijō.
