A scan from the November issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine revealed that Akiko Higashimura's manga Kuragehime is heading toward its conclusion. The series resumed in July after being on a hiatus since October of last year.

Written and illustrated by Akiko Higashimura, the series has been serialized in Kiss magazine since 2008. It received an 11-episode TV anime adaptation by Brain's Base in 2010, as well as a live-action movie in 2014. The series also received a two-chapter manga prequel, both featured in last year's November and December issues. The manga won the shoujo category award in the 34th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2010. There are currently fifteen volumes in print.

Kodansha Comics USA has currently licensed 12 volumes of the manga for North American release, with the first two omnibus editions, containing two volumes each, to be released in February 2016. FUNimation Entertainment simulcasted the series in North America and released Blu-ray and DVDs of the anime adaptation on February 28, 2012.

NOOOOOOOO :( Although I am glad that the manga is no longer on hiatus, I'm still bummed that one of my favourite series is ending. Ahhh. Hope the scanlations come out soon.

I loved the anime, it was really cute and the characters were all lovable buuuuut I still need to read the manga. A second season would be nice BTW but I don't really think Brain's Base will ever make it.

This anime/manga isn't the type to generate a lot of popularity because it targets a niche audience.

Sadly, the best anime/manga are always underrated, so yeah, a second season would be almost impossible. Why must this always happen?...

They need to animate the rest of the manga, it's such an amazing story.

I've never heard of this series until now, might give it a read sometime later.

Hmm was considering reading/watching this eventually. Guess I might as well wait until it's over then

Sep 25, 2015 12:57 AM by HaXXspetten

I absolutely loved the anime, so I need to get to the manga soon! Hope it reaches a satisfying conclusion.

I can't wait to see who she's going to end up with...but with an ending in sight, who else could she possibly end up with....

One of those series I keep hearing good things about but never got around to.

Finally. I've been meaning to read the manga ever since I watched the anime, but didn't pick it up because it looked like the ending was nowhere in sight. I don't have the patience to wait around for months and years for a manga to end.
