Bekkōrico launched manga in November 2017

The official website for Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine revealed on Saturday that Bekkōrico's Sora to Umi no Aida (Between the Sky and Sea) manga will end in the magazine's January issue on November 27.

Bekkōrico launched the manga in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh in its November 2017 issue as part of the overall Sora to Umi no Aida multimedia franchise. Kadokawa published the manga's first volume on April 27 and will publish the second volume on December 25.

The Between the Sky and Sea franchise is ForwardWorks' first original IP and includes a smartphone game, radio program, manga, television anime, novel, and stage performances. Sakura Wars creator Ouji Hiroi is credited with the original work and is serving as general manager for the project.

The anime premiered on October 3, and will have 12 episodes. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs, and it describes the anime:

Fish suddenly disappeared on Earth.

The Ministry of Fisheries has initiated the experimental program of creating ‘Aquatic Orbs’, farming fish in encapsulated bodies of water in space. Six girls are selected as candidates to become fishers who will go into space to catch new species of fish.

From Onomichi City to the cosmos, this is the story of aspiring girls aiming to be Space Fishers!

Sentai Filmworks has licensed the anime for streaming and home video.

The smartphone game debuted in Japan in September 2017, and later debuted in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Masashi Takimoto wrote the Sora to Umi no Aida Hajimari no Monogatari (The Space Between the Sky and Sea Origin Story) novel that Dengeki Game Bunko published on June 9.
