This year's fourth issue of Shonengahosha's Young King magazine (issue cover pictured at right) announced on Monday that Boichi will publish the final chapter of the Sun-Ken Rock manga in two more issues. The manga will take a break in the next issue, and then end in this year's sixth issue of Young King on February 22.
The series tells the story of Japanese teenager Ken Kitano, who follows the girl he likes to Seoul, Korea. After he arrives, his impressive fighting skills and strong spirit draw the attention of a gang.
The manga has been running in Shonengahosha's Young King magazine since 2006. JManga released part of the series in English online starting in July 2012 before the site ended its service in May 2013. Crunchyroll now releases the manga online in English.
Boichi launched a spinoff manga of Yū Sasuga and Kenichi Tachibana's Terra Formars manga titled Terra Formars Asimov (Terra Formars Gaiden Asimov) in the 23rd issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine in November.
Dark Horse Comics published the Trigun: Multiple Bullets manga in North America, which featured work by Boichi.
