Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens Manga Has 3 Chapters Left

posted on by Karen Ressler
Series began in 2005, inspired anime in 2008

This year's May issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine announced on Monday that Eri Takenashi's Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens manga will end in three chapters. The manga will not run in the June issue, so the final three chapters are scheduled for the July, August, and September issues. The September issue with the final chapter will ship on July 27.

The manga's story centers around Nagi-sama, a goddess who comes to life before an art student when he carves a statue from a Kannagi tree. Takenashi began the manga in Comic Rex in December 2005, though the manga was on hiatus from 2009 to 2011 while Takenashi recovered from an illness. Ichijinsha published the 11th compiled volume last July.

The manga inspired an anime adaptation in 2008. Bandai Entertainment released both the beginning of the Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens manga and its anime adaptation in North America.

Shinichi Yuhki, a manga creator who happens to be Takanashi's brother, launched a Kannagi spinoff manga titled Kanpachi - Crazy Seriola Dumerili in Comic Rex in 2010, and the series ended last March.
