If you consider manga endings a gift, Kodansha’s Young Magazine has a big one coming this Christmas. According to the latest issue, Akira Hiramoto’s Prison School manga is officially set to end in the next one, which hits stores in Japan on December 25.
Prison School first launched in the pages of Young Magazine back in 2011, inspiring a 12-episode anime adaptation in 2015 along with a 2017 spinoff by Redrop. Yen Press publishes the manga in North America.
Here’s how Yen Press sums up the series:
Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls’ boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo…once upon a time. But with the new school year comes a revision to school policy: Boys are to be admitted into the student body for the first time ever. But on his first day at Hachimitsu, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he’s one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Their numbers overwhelmed by the thousand girls in the student body, is it heaven or hell that awaits these five (un)fortunates?!
