Hyouge Mono Manga Ends on November 30

posted on by Karen Ressler
Award-winning series began in 2005

This year's 52nd issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine announced on Wednesday that Yoshihiro Yamada's Hyouge Mono manga will end in the next issue on November 30.

The magazine had announced last month that the manga would return on November 2 for its "last spurt."

The manga centers on Furuta Sasuke (Furuta Oribe), a vassal of the great warlord Oda Nobunaga and a man obsessed with tea ceremony and material desires in his pursuit of a fortuitous life. Having learned from Oda and the legendary tea master Sen no Sōeki, Furuta walks the way of the "Hyouge Mono."

Yamada launched the manga in Morning in 2005, and Kodansha published the manga's 24th compiled book volume on June 23. The manga inspired a television anime adaptation in 2011.

The manga won the Grand Prize in the 14th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prizes in 2010. The series also earned an Excellence Prize in the 13th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2009.
