posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine revealed on Thursday that Shizuru Hayashiya's Hayate X Blade 2 manga will end in the magazine's next issue on November 17.
Hayashiya launched manga in Ultra Jump in August 2013. Shueisha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on June 19.
The manga is a sequel to Hayashiya's Hayate X Blade manga. Seven Seas Entertainment published six volumes of the original manga, and it describes the story:
The all-girls boarding school Tenchi Academy isn't just known for its quality academics - it's also known for training the top sword fighters in the country. Students in the special "Sword Bearer" program compete in a school-wide battle known as the Star Stealing, striving to win both money and fame.
Enter Kurogane Hayate. With her sister Nagi recovering from a lingering injury, the spunky and cheerful Hayate must take her place at the Academy until Nagi is well enough to return. When Hayate learns of the mountain of debt her old orphanage, the Dandelion Garden, owes to Yakuza loan sharks, she decides to become a sword-bearer and win the Star Stealing.
There's just one problem: she needs a partner to compete and the girl Hayate has her eye on wants nothing to do with her!
Hayashiya launched the original Hayate X Blade yuri action-comedy manga in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Daioh magazine in 2004, and the manga moved to the Ultra Jump magazine in 2008 before ending in June 2013. ASCII Media Works published eight volumes for the manga, and Shueisha published 18 volumes.
