posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Shogakukan is listing a 20th volume for Nao Maita's Age 12 (12-Sai.) manga for release on July 1. The volume will include new stories set after the characters graduate from elementary school and move on to junior high.
Maita ended the manga in Shogakukan's Ciao magazine last October. Maita launched the manga in 2012, and the series entered a new "finale" arc titled 12-Sai. ~Sotsugyō~ (Age 12 Graduation) in March 2019. Shogakukan published the manga's 19th volume (seen right) on December 26, and published a "volume 19.5" fan book on April 30. The manga won Best Children's Manga at the 64th Shogakukan Manga Awards last year.
