Denki-Gai no Honya-san Manga Ends in November

Manga by Asato Mizu inspired TV anime in 2014

The July issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine announced on Monday that Asato Mizu's Denki-Gai no Honya-san manga will end in the magazine's December issue in November. The manga has six chapters left. In addition, the manga's 14th compiled book volume (seen right) revealed on May 23 that the 15th volume will be the last.

The "youthful bookstore comedy" manga revolves around the folks who work in a Manga Shop deep in a certain "Electric Town" neighborhood. ("Denki-Gai" or "Electric Town" is a popular name for shopping areas that specialize or used to specialize in electric and electronic items, like Tokyo's Akihabara.) The protagonist Umio works part-time at "BOOKS Umanohone" along with his senior at work (but not in age) Hiotan. As many dedicated manga fans visit the store, there is always something going on.

Mizu launched the manga in Monthly Comic Flapper in 2011. The manga inspired the Denki-Gai television anime adaptation in October 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Ponycan USA released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in 2015.
