Hirakawa's Clover Manga to End on October 15
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 45th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed on Thursday that Tetsuhiro Hirakawa is ending his Clover fighting manga in the magazine's next issue, which Akita Shoten will publish on October 15.
The manga's story follows three boys — Hayato, Tomoki, and Kenji — who were close friends in elementary school. Hayato transfered to another school, and the three drifted apart. Five years later, however, Hayato returns, and the three reunite by chance.
Hirakawa launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Champion in 2007. Akita Shoten published the manga's 42nd compiled book volume on Thursday. The manga received a live-action drama adaptation that aired on TV Tokyo from April to June 2012. Hirakawa's manga is unrelated to two similarly named Clover shōjo manga series from CLAMP and Toriko Chiya.
