Manga inspired 24-episode anime series last year
This year’s 34th issue of Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump published the final chapter of Kawada‘s Hinomaru Sumo manga on Monday. The manga’s 27th volume will ship in October, and the 28th and final volume will ship in December. Kawada thanked all his fans and readers for five years of serialization in his author comments in the magazine.
The previous issue of the magazine revealed last week that the manga is reaching its “climax” in the next issue.
The manga inspired a 24-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2018. Funimation and Crunchyroll both streamed the series as it aired. Crunchyroll describes the series:
The intense fight for the dream of yokozuna has begun. A new student has joined Odachi High School’s weak sumo club, the small boy Ushio Hinomaru! Although his physique seems ill-suited to a fighting sport where size and weight rule, Hinomaru has an incredible dream. He and the weak sumo club will fight their way to the top! The intense battle of high school sumo has begun!
Kawada launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2014. Shueisha published the 26th volume on July 4.
