This year's 19th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine revealed on Friday that Hiroya Oku's GIGANT manga will end in the magazine's 20th issue on September 24. Oku additionally stated on Twitter on September 3 that the manga's 10th and final compiled book volume will ship in December.
The manga entered its final arc in August 2020.
Rei Yokoyamada, a high schooler whose father works for a film production company, is inspired to create his own short film with his friends. One day, while out to find actors, he spots tabloid-like notices that the adult film star Papico lives in his area. When he takes them down to protect her, he runs into the woman herself. Little does he know that Papico is about to get dragged into a strange, supernatural happening…where she grows to the size of a giant!
Oku launched the manga in Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine in December 2017. Shogakukan published the manga's ninth volume on August 30.
Oku (Gantz) ended his Inuyashiki manga series in its 10th volume in September 2017. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in North America in print, and Crunchyroll released the series digitally. The manga's anime adaptation premiered in October 2017, and it streamed on Amazon's Anime Strike service. A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan in April 2018.
