Witchcraft Works Manga Takes 1-Month Hiatus, Ends in 3 Chapters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The December issue of Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine revealed on Saturday that Ryū Mizunagi's Witchcraft Works manga will end in three chapters (including the chapter in the December issue), but will not have a chapter in the magazine's next issue. If there are no further delays, the manga will end in February 2022.
The manga's 16th compiled book volume previously revealed on July 7 that the manga's 17th volume will be the final volume.
Vertical is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Honoka Takamiya is an average student. Ayaka Kagari, his classmate who sits next to him in class, on the other hand, is the class "Princess." Ayaka is tall, strikingly gorgeous, and has a regalness to her that almost exudes a royal attitude. Despite their proximity in school, over the school year the two have never shared much conversation... until today.
So today as class ended, Takamiya was suddenly attacked by a cat-eared witch and her band of bunny-costumed thugs! And if that were not enough of a shock, this average joe would then be saved like a Princess by none other than Ayaka Kagari... a witch herself!
Mizunagi launched the manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in March 2010. The magazine announced in its May issue on April 7 that the manga was entering its final arc. Vertical published the 15th volume on April 13.
The manga inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in January 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The manga's eighth volume bundled an original anime disc in 2015.
