I knew Nakayoshi had a manga on Morning Musume...but at the very least they did have some young female fans. Shokotan fans are mainly otakus, with a half and half split with male and female. I have no idea why they're drawing a manga on Shokotan...Originally Posted by ANN
Natsume Ono, mangaka of Ristorante Paradiso and House of Five Leaves, will launch a new series called Nigeru Otoko in the May issue of Manga Erotics F. Nigeru Otoko revolves around an encounter with a bear in a forest where a girl has gotten lost. Hopefully a translator with really good taste steps forward so something by Ono-sensei is finally available online
Yubisaki Milk Tea will end in the next issue of Young Animal. That issue will also contain an important announcement about Detroit Metal City.
Detroit Metal City will end in the 10th issue of Young Animal, on sale April 23 in Japan. Thanks to raw-paradise for the news.

It's really not.
Some awesome news
Buronson (writer of Fist of the North Star, Sanctuary, Heat, Strain, Fist of the Blue Sky, etc.) has started a new manga with Daichi Matsuse as the artist called "Full Swing"
It will premiere in the June issue of Monthly Shonen Sunday.
Link to the article can be found here.
I never read Alive but after reading what the author went through to finish it before he died is amazing. I may actually read it soon.
One of my favourite series!
What a shame he died,Rest in Peace.
42 is way too soon to die... This writer could have given more to the writer's/manga world. Life canbe really hard
It's really tragic. He wrote the final chapters, and began working on a new series, from his sick bed.
The final issue of Weekly Comic Bunch will ship on August 27. The status of it's series, including the popular City Hunter spin off Angel Heart and Fist of the Blue Sky (Fist of the North Star prequel), has not been announced. Publisher Coamix is considering launching a new anthology this fall.
Comic Yuri Hime S will ship it's last issue on September 18. Yuri Hime S is a quarterly yuri magazine aimed at men. Comic Yuri Hime, aimed primarily at women, will change from quarterly to bi-monthly. Comic Yuri Hime will now "combine the essence of the two", catering to both men and women.
So Tenjo Tenge going to end. Then, I think Ultra Jump really needs another hit series because Tenjo Tenge is highest selling series in UJ, plus I think Steel Ball Run (another hit series) is also near the end.
Ouran High School Host Club is entering it's final arc, according to the current issue of LaLa. The exact ending has not been reported. The magazine is also launching Host Club: the Last Party fan campaign. The campaign will include a fan art contest, vote for favorite title page, and favorite quotes. The favorite quotes will be recorded by the anime's cast and available as a special mail away offer in the October issue of LaLa. Ouran has been running since 2003.
If Nabari is ending, I'm almost inspired to catch up on it. I may just wait till it finishes to read it all.
House of Five Leaves ending is sad, or would be if it were scanlated. I'm looking forward to the volumes being released this fall. Natsume Ono is one of my favorite mangaka.
Battle Angel Alita: Last Order (GUNM: Last Order) will go on indefinite hiatus after chapter 100, due in the next issue of Ultra Jump. Mangaka Yukito Kishiro has not decided when or if it will return.
