The official Twitter account for Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine editors reported on Saturday that Makoto Kawai will end the Happy Cooking Graffiti (Kōfuku Graffiti) manga in the Manga Time Kirara Miracle magazine's November issue, which ships on September 16. The seventh and final compiled book volume of the manga will ship on September 27.
The September issue of Manga Time Kirara Miracle also shipped on Saturday with the announcement, and it is the first of three consecutive issues to feature the manga with a color opening page.

The manga's story follows Ryō, a middle school girl who lives by herself. She has a knack for cooking, and she makes friendships with everyone through her food. The cooking manga is "full of detailed cuisine art to whet the appetite and slightly erotic meal scenes." The "kōfuku" in the title is a wordplay on two Japanese homonyms — one that means "happiness," and another that means "appetite."
The manga inspired a television anime that aired in 2015 with the English title Gourmet Girl Graffiti. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it airs, and Sentai Filmworks will release the anime on home video in North America next month.
