posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's October issue of Hakusensha's Ane LaLa, which shipped on Tuesday, was the magazine's final issue.
The issue included the final chapter of Masami Tsuda's Hinoko manga. The manga began in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine in 2012 and moved to Ane LaLa in 2015. The eighth and final volume will ship this winter, and Tsuda will begin a new work in Hakusensha's Melody in 2018.
Tomo Matsumoto's Inferno has one remaining chapter, and it will debut digitally in February 2018. The fifth and final volume will ship the same month.
Ken Saito's Kawaii Hito, Chiaki Karasawa's Kaoruko in Wonderland, and Nari Kusakawa's Tokyo Kooni Life will move to Hakusensha's LaLa DX. Kawaii Hito will begin in the January 2018 issue in December after a special chapter runs in LaLa in October. Kaoruko in Wonderland will begin in the November issue in October, and Tokyo Kooni Life will serialize irregularly.
Masami Morio's Otona no Kobayashi-kun and Yaeko Kashi's YamaKoi ~Yama de Koi wa Umareru ka~ will have new chapters online in mid-November. The second volume of Meca Tanaka's Asa made Matemasen!, which was irregularly serializing in the magazine, will ship on December 5.
Ane LaLa is a magazine geared toward an audience of "adult girls," containing guest-written manga shorts and some manga serializations. The magazine launched in 2013 as a big sister magazine to LaLa, and switched from running every three months to every two months in 2014.
