The August 2015 issue of Shogakukan’s Monthly Spirits magazine has announced that Taiyo Matsumoto will end his Sunny manga in the next issue on July 27, 2015.
The story focuses on children at Star Kids Home orphanage. An abandoned yellow car, Sunny, takes them anywhere they want to go. With Sunny, the children can escape their circumstances and go on imaginary adventures around the world and beyond.
The manga was nominated for the Best Comic award at the 42nd annual Angoulême International Comics Festival earlier in 2015. The manga was also nominated for a Harvey Award in 2014, and won Slate Book Review and Vermont’s Center for Cartoon Studies’ Best Graphic Novel prize in 2013.
Matsumoto launched Sunny in Shogakukan’s Monthly Ikki magazine in 2010. VIZ Media is releasing the manga in English.
