This year’s 18th issue of Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine has announced that Rin Suzukawa’s Asobi Asobase manga will end in three chapters. If the manga does not take any breaks, it should end in the 21st issue on October 28, 2022.
The “surreal gag” comedy manga revolves around three classmates who play traditional hand games, board games, and card games. Kasumi is smart, serious, and is good at games, but hates them because she always lost to her older sister and was forced to do chores while growing up. She is also extremely bad at English. Olivia is a beautiful girl of American descent, but was raised in Japan, and she only pretends to be bad at Japanese. Hanako is a girl who wears her hair in pigtails and has a bright personality, but still can’t manage to become the kind of normal person she wants to be.
Suzukawa launched Asobi Asobase on Hakusensha’s Young Animal Densi manga website in 2015, but moved it to the main Young Animal magazine in November 2016. Comikey Media Inc. publishes the manga digitally in English.
