‘Handa-kun’ Manga Ending

2 min read

Handa-kun Volume 1 CoverAs seems to be the case from time to time, the debut of a new anime series marks the end of the source material manga series. The latest one to have this happen to it is Handa-kun from Satsuki Yoshino. Yoshino’s manga is getting an anime adaptation this July and Monthly Shonen Gangan has now revealed that the June 11th issue will have the final chapter of the series. That in turn gives us a pretty good bit of confidence that the anime adaptation will work with that finale mapped out in mind, making for what should be a pretty good complete series that complements the Barakamon series. Five volumes have been released in Japan with the sixth and final expected later this year.

Yen Press has the North American rights for the book with the first volume debuting last month.

Plot concept: Seishuu Handa is admired by his peers as a calligraphy genius and given the utmost respect, but Handa-kun himself is under the mistaken impression that the deference and attention he receives from the other students is actually bullying. Handa just wants to live a quiet life, but hilarity ensues as one character after another challenges his position as the school idol, and somehow comes away as a fan all while Handa is horrified and clueless.
