posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's combined 22nd and 23rd issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine will publish the final chapter of Daichi Sorayomi's Keijo!!!!!!!! aquatic sports manga on Wednesday. The manga's 16th volume will ship in May, the 17th volume will ship in June, and the 18th volume will ship in July.
Sorayomi launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 2013, and Shogakukan published the 15th compiled volume on March 31.
The manga takes place in an alternate Japan where a sport called "Keijo" by law in 2003 became a sport alongside horse racing, boat racing, and cycling that allows for gambling. In the sport, contestants stand on platforms floating on the water and must use their butts and chests to fight against each other to push each other off the platform. Nozomi Kaminashi, a high school student, aims to join the sport after she graduates. Nozomi was raised in a poor family and hopes to make lots of money by playing Keijo. She grew up training in gymnastics, and she has good balance and flexibility. After high school, Nozomi joins a training boarding school and enters the world of Keijo.
The manga inspired 12-episode anime series that premiered in October, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it airs. Funimation also streamed the series with an English dub.
All six Japanese Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video releases for the series are bundling a "completely new bonus anime."
