Haré+Guu's Kindaichi to End Liar x Liar Manga in 3 Chapters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The June issue of Kodansha's Dessert magazine is revealing on Monday that Renjuro Kindaichi's Liar x Liar manga will end in three chapters. The magazine's April issue previously noted in February that the manga would end in four chapters, but the manga took a one-month break in the May issue. If there are no delays, the manga will end on July 24.
The manga centers on 20-year-old Minato, who one day decides to wear her friend's high school uniform just for fun. She runs into her stepbrother Tōru, who is only a little younger than she is. Minato manages to convince him that she is a completely different person, and Tōru asks her out. Eventually, Tōru begins to fall in love with Minato's high school alter-ego.
Kindaichi launched the manga in Dessert in 2010. Kodansha published the manga's ninth compiled book volume (seen right) in November. The manga ranked #10 in Takarajimasha Inc.'s Kono Manga ga Sugoi ranking in 2012, and was nominated for the 39th annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015.
Kindaichi launched the manga Jungle wa Itsumo Hare Nochi Guu in 1996, and the manga inspired the Haré+Guu television series, as well as the Haré+Guu Deluxe and Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final original video anime. AN Entertainment licensed the television anime and Haré+Guu Deluxe in North America. Kindaichi is also serializing the manga LaLaLa in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine, as well as the Yūbe wa Otanoshimi Deshita ne (It Was Fun Last Night) manga in Gangan Online.
