Ruri Miyahara's Love Lab Manga Ends in October

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
4-panel comedy manga launched in 2006, inspired TV anime in 2013

Manga creator Ruri Miyahara confirmed on Twitter on Saturday that she will end her Love Lab (Renai Lab) manga in the December issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Special magazine, which will ship on October 22.

The manga inspired a 13-episode television anime series that premiered in July 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the anime on home video in 2014.

Crunchyroll describes the anime:

Fujisaki Girls Academy, commonly known as "Fujijo," is famous for being attended by distinguished young ladies. Stubborn, righteous, and known as "the wild one," student council president aide Riko. Brilliant, beautiful, just, and admired by all students as "Miss Fujisaki," student council president Maki. Shy, easily embarrassed, and clumsy, student council secretary Suzu. Charmingly thick eyebrows and fluffy hair, student council vice president Eno. Money-loving and coolly watching everyone study from behind her glasses, treasurer Sayo.

Miyahara launched the four-panel manga in Houbunsha's Manga Home magazine in 2006, and it has ran in other Houbunsha magazines. The manga has been serializing in Manga Time Special since 2010. Houbunsha published the manga's 14th compiled volume in November 2018.

Miyahara's Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou manga inspired a television anime adaptation by Brains Base in 2014. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime and streamed it on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan with the title The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior. Sentai Filmworks released the series on DVD in August 2015, and on Blu-ray Disc in December 2016.
