2014 is the year where many popular manga titles are ending their run. Titles like Claymore, Naruto and Battle Angel Alita or Gumnn are already nearing or finished their runs in this year alone. Now we have another one coming at the end of the year.
A magazine scan of Square Enix’s bimonthly manga publication, Young Gangan, announced the end of a 10-year syndication of comedy manga, Working!! in the next issue which is slated to be published on 25 December 2014.
Drawn by Karino Takatsu, it was launched back in 2005 and has since spawned two successful anime seasons with one coming soon, 12 compiled manga volumes and a strong, loyal fan base.
The four koma or four panel manga talks about an eccentric crew at a family restaurant called Wagnaria. Amongst them is a female waitress who carries a katana sword all the time, a former-delinquent manager who is a glutton for ice-cream and an emo chef who can’t get anything straight at all.
The slice of life series main characters are the cute and petite Popura Taneshima and closet lolicon lover Souta Takanashi, who joined the establishment because he fawned over Popura, his senior at school.
Bon voyage, Working!!. Thanks for 10 years of laughter.
