Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei Manga Ends in June
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The July issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine revealed on Saturday that Wataru Watanabe's Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei (Magimoji Rurumo: Afterschool Magic Middle School Student) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on June 26.
The "magical slapstick comedy" begins with Kōta Shibaki (the #1 pervert of his school) and some magical tickets that suddenly arrive for him. Rurumo, an apprentice witch who was demoted from a full witch, is training with these tickets in the human world. Shibaki can use these tickets to grant wishes that Rurumo must perform as part of her training. The catch is that each used ticket shortens Shibaki's life.
Watanabe launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Sirius in 2007, before he started the bicycling manga Yowamushi Pedal. The first seven-volume Magimoji Rurumo series ended in 2011, and Watanabe then serialized the four-volume Magimoji Rurumo: Makai-hen (Magimoji Rurumo: Magic World) series from 2011 to 2013 in the same magazine. The latest series, Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei, debuted in Monthly Shonen Sirius in June 2013.
Kodansha published the eighth compiled book volume of Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei last October. The ninth volume of the manga will ship with a two-part OVA titled Magimoji Rurumo: Kanketsu-hen (Concluding Volume) on July 9. The ninth volume will serve as the final volume in the series.
