posted on by Karen Ressler
Manga artist Usamaru Furuya (Jisatsu Circle, Lychee Light Club, No Longer Human) announced on Twitter on Friday that he plans to end his Teiichi no Kuni and Joshikōsei ni Korosaretai manga in 2016. He also mentioned that he is planning a new series.
Furuya launched Teiichi no Kuni (Teiichi's Country) in the inaugural issue of Jump SQ.19 in May 2010, but moved the manga to the main Jump Square magazine in its March 2012 issue. Shueisha shipped the 12th compiled book volume on September 4, and the 13th volume will ship on January 4.
The manga's story follows the high school student Teiichi Akaba and his student government struggles at a private boys' school in Shōwa-era Japan.
A live-action film adaptation of the manga has been green-lit. The manga has also inspired two stage plays, with a third slated for March 2016.
Joshikōsei ni Korosaretai (I Want to be Killed by a High School Girl) follows a man who becomes a teacher because he wants to be killed by a high school girl. Furuya began the manga in Shinchosha's Go Go Bunch in 2013, and Shinchosha shipped the first compiled volume in February.
The manga was a jury selection at the 19th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2015.
