Kochikame's Osamu Akimoto Ends Ii Yu da ne! Manga on June 19
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The manga is a "sequel" to Akimoto's Kochikame manga. The story is set in the Kuma no Yu bathhouse in Tokyo's low-lying Shitamachi area. The bathhouse's owner, Gorō Kuma, is a gold prospector who travels around the world looking for mines, and his son stays behind with his grandfather to look after the bathhouse in his absence. One day, Gorō's Brazillian wife Maria arrives at the bathhouse. The son and grandfather are deeply moved by Maria's earnestness, and her beauty and brightness save the bathhouse from having to close.
Akimoto ended the Kochikame police comedy manga in September 2016, after 40 years of serialization.
