Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō Manga Ends in 2 Chapters
posted on by Karen Ressler
The 119th chapter of author Ipyao and artist Yūjirō Koyama's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō manga announced on Thursday that the manga will end in two chapters. If there are no breaks, the manga will end with the 121st chapter on March 23.
The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.
The manga series began weekly serialization in Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November 2014, and Shueisha published the ninth compiled volume on December 31. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant).
An anime adaptation directed by Akitarō Daichi premiered in April 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
