Kanan Minami's Awa-Koi Manga Ends in December (Updated)

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Shōjo manga launched in 2016

Manga creator Kanan Minami posted on Twitter on September 30 that she will end her Awa-Koi manga in Shogakukan's digital magazine &Flower in the manga's next chapter on December 5.

Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine had announced in July 2018 that Minami was putting the manga on a long hiatus, and would return to her work when her condition improved. The manga then resumed in &Flower in December 2019, and started its final arc.

Minami launched the Awa-Koi manga in Sho-Comi in 2016, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped in February 2019. The manga will have a total of five volumes.

The story centers on a high school girl named Yūka who wants to fall in love but goes for a guy with no interest. In junior high school, she devoted herself to club activities, but after entering high school she decides she definitely wants to get a boyfriend. Yūka knows Kentarō may be a difficult choice, but she sets her sights on him nonetheless.

Minami's Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu began serializing in Sho-Comi in January 2008, and it ended in 2011. The manga inspired two anime DVDs in 2010 and a live-action film in 2012.

Minami's other manga include Honey & Honey Drops and Miseinen dakedo Kodomo ja Nai.

Update: Corrected article to state that the manga will end on December 5.
