VIZ Media has announced that it will not publish the final chapter of storywriter Tatsuya Matsuki and artist Shiro Usazaki’s act-age manga on its English Shonen Jump service. The company posted the official English translation of Shueisha’s Japanese statement, which Shueisha also posted on its MANGA Plus service. Additionally, VIZ Media removed its listing of further compiled book volumes of the manga, as well as a notice that it would add chapters 26-45 of the manga after they were translated.
The editors of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine had announced that they canceled the publication of the manga itself. The chapter that appeared in this year’s combined 36th and 37th issue, which shipped on August 11, 2020, is the final chapter. Shueisha’s MANGA Plus service had announced that it would not publish the final chapter on its platform.
NHK reported on August 8, 2020 that Matsuki was arrested on suspicion of committing an indecent act with a female middle school student.
