Shomin Sample Manga Ends in September

Manga adapts original light novel series that inspired anime in 2015

The October issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine revealed on Monday that artist Risumai's Shomin Sample: I Was Abducted by an Elite All-Girls School as a Sample Commoner manga will end in the next issue, which ships on September 27.

The manga adapts Takafumi Nanatsuki's light novel series of the same name. Risumai launched the manga in 2012, and Ichijinsha published manga's 14th volume on June 27.

Seven Seas is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the series:

Deep in the forest-covered mountains is an all-girls school, attended by children from only the richest and most prestigious of families. Here, the girls are raised to be perfect young ladies, cut off from the real world to preserve their innocence and ensure that they're free from all distractions. This policy of isolation is a double-edged sword, however, for after graduation, students of the academy often struggle to adapt to a world that's totally different from their cloistered school life.

To combat this inevitable culture shock, an average teenage boy, Kagurazaka Kimito, is kidnapped by the school to provide its students with knowledge of the outside world. Forced to enroll against his wishes, Kimito must now attend classes in a place where his very manhood relies on keeping the girls happy. Can one regular guy possibly survive in a fearsome, all-female student body?

Seven Seas will release the ninth compiled volume on November 20.

Nanatsuki's 11-volume Ore ga Ojō-sama Gakkō ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Rachirareta Ken light novel series debuted in 2011 with Gekka Urū's (Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne) character designs, and ended in 2016. The novels inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2015. Funimation streamed the Shomin Sample TV anime series and streamed a Broadcast Dub. Funimation then released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in January 2017.

The October issue of Monthly Comic Rex also teased that Aoi Ohmori's Cylcia=Code manga will approach its "climax" in the November issue.
