posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Maoh magazine revealed on Monday that Tanejūgō's Kantai Collection -KanColle- Onegai! Chinjubu Meyasubako (Please! Harbor Suggestion Box) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on October 27.
The magazine is a spinoff of the Kan Colle franchise, and centers on an organization of Ship Girls at the harbor base who take suggestions, cases, and problems at the base's suggestion box, and try to solve them.
Tanejūgō launched the manga in Dengeki Maoh in June 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on March 27.
The overall franchise is based on a web browser game that launched in 2013, and is set in a world where humanity has lost control of the seas. The threat that has taken over the seas is the Abyssal fleet. The only ones who can counter this threat are Kan-Musu (Fleet Girls), girls who possess the spirit of naval vessels from days gone by.
The first 12-episode TV anime series premiered in January 2015 and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Funimation released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with English subtitles and an English dub in June 2017.
The final episode of the first television anime series had revealed in March 2015 that the television anime would get a sequel. The anime's official Twitter account indicated in August 2015 that the franchise's movie project and the sequel were separate projects that went into production at the same time.
Studio ENGI — the new 2D/3D animation studio that publisher Kadokawa, pachinko and pachislot game machine maker Sammy, and anime holding company Ultra Super Pictures established in April 2018 — is producing the new anime. Kadokawa reportedly told C2 Kikan in January that the new anime would air in 2022.
