Manga about woman living in ruined city launched in 2007

This year's 20th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Monday that Shin Takahashi's Hana to Okutan manga will end in the magazine's 29th issue on June 17.

The manga entered its final arc on June 3.

The manga is set in the aftermath of a giant flower appearing in Tokyo, upending most of the functions of the city and rendering it abandoned. In the ruined city, a woman goes about her daily life of survival while waiting for her husband to return.

Takahashi launched the manga in Big Comic Spirits in 2007 as an irregular serialization. Takahashi began serializing the manga weekly last November. Shogakukan published the manga's second compiled book volume in 2013.

Takahashi recently ended his Kanata Kakeru manga last September, and also revealed at the same time that he will launch a new work about the university ekiden race in 2019. He recently launched another new manga titled Kami o Kiri ni Kimashita (I've Come to Cut Your Hair) in Hakusensha's Melody magazine on April 27.

Viz Media released Takahashi's Saikano manga in North America. The series inspired a television anime, an original video anime, and a live-action film. Takahashi's other manga include Iihito, Saishū Heiki Kanojo Another World, Yuki ni Tsubasa, and Hatsukoi Honya.
