The January issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine is revealing on Friday that manga artist duo Futago Kamikita's Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode manga will end in the magazine's next issue on December 29.
The manga adapts the currently airing anime series, the latest installment in the Precure magical girl series. The show's theme is a crossover of colorful sweets with cool and cute animals. The main characters run a sweet shop and must face off against evil fairies to protect their beloved confections.
The manga launched in Nakayoshi on February 3. Kodansha published the manga's first compiled book volume on August 10.
The anime, which is the 14th entry in the Precure animated series, premiered on February 5.
The anime also inspired an anime film titled Eiga Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode: Paris to! Omoide no Mille-Feuille! that opened in Japan on October 28. The film ranked #1 in tickets sold at the Japanese box office in its opening weekend, when it sold 170,659 tickets on 217 screens to earn 193,101,900 yen (about US$1.7 million).
