This year's 24th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Miki Yoshikawa is ending her Yankee-kun to Megane-chan school comedy manga in the next issue on May 18. Yoshikawa launched the manga in October of 2006, and the 23rd compiled book volume will ship on June 17.

In the 211-chapter story, the eyeglasses-wearing, overachieving class representative Hana "Megane-chan" Adachi goes all out to drag the delinquent Daichi "Yankee-kun" Shinagawa into their high school's social circles and activities. Daichi learns that Hana was secretly a former delinquent herself, and that is why she tries so hard to reform Daichi.

The manga inspired a live-action television series with Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen, Akihabara @ DEEP, NANA) as Daichi and Riisa Naka (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Kami no Shizuku) as Hana. The television series ran from April to June of last year.

Now I wish that Chuang Yi will pick it up again (it dropped the English version after volume 3).
