Buddy Go! Manga Ends in 3 Chapters

posted on by April
'Cross-dressing romance' manga launched in 2014

The March issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine revealed on Friday that Minori Kurosaki's Buddy Go! manga is ending in three chapters. If there are no breaks, the manga will end in the May issue.

Ribon had announced previously in December that the manga was heading toward its climax.

The "cross-dressing romance" manga centers around Ai Shizukuishi, a shy, plain girl with not-so-great grades and a secret. She posted videos of her dancing in male clothes onto Smile Dōga (an homage to the real-life streaming service Niconico Dōga, which literally means "Smile Video"), and she became a viral hit. Ai aims to beat Hayate, the "godly" "prince of dance" on Smile Dōga. However, her cross-dressing dances happen to catch the eye of an entertainment agency, so she makes her professional debut — in an idol unit with Hayate. On top of that, the two have to share quarters under the agency's rules.

Kurosaki launched the manga in Ribon in September 2014, and Shueisha published the 10th volume on November 24.

The manga inspired seven short anime episodes that aired on TV and streamed online in 2016.
