posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kozaki previously stated in January 2019 that the manga was planned to end last year.
The manga centers on Asahi Tōjima, a first-year high school student at Futatsuzaka High School. She had been in the art club throughout middle school, but begins training with the naginata (Japanese halberd), saying that even people without talent in sports one day can shine in the nationals the next. Along with her beloved upperclassman Maharu Miyaji, her classmate with experience in kendo Shōko Yasomura, and a girl who has worries about her height named Sakura Konno, Asahi forms a new group of "Naginata Girls."
Kozaki, the younger sister of Fire Emblem: Awakening and No More Heroes character designer Yūsuke Kozaki, launched Asahinagu in Big Comic Spirits in 2011. Shogakukan published the manga's 32nd compiled book volume on January 30. The manga won the Best General Manga award at the 60th Shogakukan Awards in 2015.
