posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 46th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Hikaru Katsuki's Baby Steps manga will end in three more chapters, including the one Kodansha will publish on Wednesday.
Katsuki launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2007. Kodansha published the manga's 46th compiled book volume (pictured at right) on September 15.
The manga revolves around Eiichirō "Ei-chan" Maruo, a punctual and earnest boy who has strived for straight As since elementary school. The 15-year-old high school boy stops by a tennis school to deal with his lack of exercise. There, he meets Natsu Takasaki, a beautiful, earnest girl who only has passion for tennis.
The manga's first television anime series premiered in April 2014, and the second series premiered in April 2015. Katsuki himself collaborated on the creation of episodes with original stories not told in the manga. Studio Pierrot animated both television series, with 25 episodes for each series. Crunchyroll streamed both series as they aired in Japan.
