Shinchosha's Kurage Bunch website revealed on Friday that Nodoka Shinomaru's Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari (Poco's Udon World) manga will end in the next chapter, which the site will publish on February 15.
The manga's 11th volume had revealed in September that the manga will end with its 12th compiled book volume, which is slated to ship in March.
The series follows Sōta Tawara, a 30-year-old man who was the son of an udon shop owner who has passed away. Sōta goes back to his hometown, but finds a strange lost child inside his father's old shop. As Sōta is taking care of him, the child, named Poco, suddenly grows ears and a tail. The manga follows the human Sōta and the tanuki Poco as they start to live together, meet and connect with others, and grow.
Shinomaru launched the manga in Shinchosha's Comic Bunch magazine in 2012. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime adaptation by Seiki Takuno (Sekkō Boys, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) and LIDEN FILMS that premiered in October 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The show is also available to purchase on Amazon.
