posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The September issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine is revealing on Tuesday that Mari Ozawa's Gin no Spoon (Silver Spoon; no connection to the Hiromu Arakawa manga with a similar name) manga will end in its next chapter. The manga won't be in the October issue, and will end in the November issue on September 25.
The manga's story centers around Ritsu, a high school boy who, along with his younger brother Shirabe and sister Kanade, were raised by their single mother Kyōko. When their mother is hospitalized due to sickness, Ritsu begins to take care of his younger siblings and cook food for them, slowly entering the world of cooking. Things become more complicated when Ritsu finds out a shocking fact: that he is an adopted child.
Ozawa (Papa no Sagashimono, Tanpopo no Watage, Easy Writer) launched the manga in Kodansha's Kiss magazine in 2010, and Kodansha published the manga's 16th compiled book volume on April 13.
The manga inspired a live-action television series titled Ashita mo Kitto, Oishii Gohan ~Gin no Spoon~ (Tomorrow There Will Also Surely Be Delicious Meals ~Silver Spoon~) that premiered in June 2015.
