The 21st issue of this year's Shounen Sunday has announced that the combined 22nd and 23rd issue of the magazine will contain the final chapter of Daichi Sorayomi's Keijo!!!!!!!! manga. The issue will go on sale on April 26.

Keijo!!!!!!!! has been serialized in Shounen Sunday since July 2013. The series currently has 15 volumes in print, with the 16th and 17th volume scheduled to ship on May 18 and June 16, respectively. An anime adaptation by Xebec aired in Fall 2016, and was simulcast by Crunchyroll. FUNimation streamed the series alongside with an English dub. The six Japanese Blu-ray and DVD volumes will each bundle a bonus anime, with the first volume shipping on November 23.

I just hope it ends at a good note. I enjoy the manga a lot more than the anime. I feel like as far as shounen manga goes, it's actually quite entertaining and ticks all the right shounen boxes. That in itself is probably the problem, at some point the plot and action just took over and the fan service became less of a focus. If you think that's bullshit look no further than Fairy Tail, which is now 5% trash plot and action plus 95% fan service.

In a manga about battling boobs and asses, people probably expect a lot more silly fan service and a stupidly dense male mc to grope those beautiful assets. Sadly Keijo has none of those. Say what you want about the series but the author must be applauded for his creativity in terms of battle techniques and choreography. Physics-defying though it is, he still tried to came up with detailed analysis on how those techniques work within the confines of rules that defines the Keijo world. Most of the battles are creative and hard to predict too.

Here's to hoping the translators complete their work on this underrated manga.

I don't watch or read Keijo, but given the fact of why the manga has to end saddens me.

After all, the author has almost no knowledge that the anime is going to flop so much in japan. So much that the manga has to somewhat pay the price.

Can't get enough of people saying that manga got axed and anime sales affected source when it's simply nearing its natural conclusion.



Fake News reaching even the anime community...

And that puts the scanlation group(s) on a great pressure.
How many chapters they made compared to the latest one?

I don't get it... IT'S NOT AXED EVERYONE. jesus, It's ending normally like every manga there is.


YES! People alerted me here in this discussion thanks god.

The translation of Sorayomi's note is fake. The note never happened. It all started on Reddit, but the post was edited!

"EDIT: As some have pointed out, there is no actual source for this outside of /a/ and nothing on the author's blog mentions it. This is most likely fake."

How so? AFAIK it says the manga is ending on a good note, not that is getting axed due to the sales.


Basically someone copypasted a quote from Reddit saying that but it turns out that it was false.
Interesting to see how fake news can spread even in a little community.

17 volumes about clashing tits an asses looks long enough for me.


I saw it on reddit /r/anime:

"I'm very sorry to write this but the timeline was not on my side.
You see, the editor came to me last week and informed myself to increase the popularity of Keijo!!!
This is not something you can do overnight. I was lost for words, as I believed we were doing fine in rankings. Today, I was informed by my editor that my manga is being removed due to the poor reception of the anime. The anime failed to make an impact, for advertising purposes, and the studio is carrying that loss because of it. It is my fault, and I am sorry. The source material should have been better and I've done a great burden. I was actually very surprised by the reception overseas. In various conversations, I was told it was greatly talked about in America. I'm glad some of you enjoyed it, but I'm sorry once again for failing. My sincerely apologies to Takahashi-san and XEBEC. Sorayomi 空詠大智".

So this is false? I'll be glad to know it's fake, really.

Where can i find the topic about the end of To Love-Ru Darkness? That was the real end of ecchi if you ask me.

Keijo!!! was cancelled for extreme poor sales, by the way (Not just anime, but also manga sales, which is the principal reason to this cancellation).

Moreover, i'm a man and Yuri on ICE is fucking good (I'm not a yaoi nor BL enthusiast but this title has its own merits, give it a try (There are also cute girls and brilliant comedy))

The end of a manga whose everyone will forget the name. Like any other ecchi. :o

The only thing I found weird about Keijo!!!!!!!! is that the blu ray bad sales affected not only the anime but the source material as well.

The downfall of ecchi because this era is now the ''Rise of the Furries''
