Three Leaves, Three Colors (Sansha Sanyou) has certainly been one of 2016’s most hilarious (and certainly underrated) anime. However, mangaka Cherry Arai has announced that after an almost-14-year run, the original manga is ending. To be precise, Arai revealed its ending in two more chapters.
The mangaka also expressed her thankfulness to fans for their support, many of whom have been following the manga for over a decade. Arai launched the manga in 2003, first getting a serialisation in Manga Time Kirara, before transferring to Manga Time Kirara Karat. Here’s how Crunchyroll, which streamed the anime online, describes the story:
Futaba Odagiri is the energetic transfer student who befriends Teru Hayama, the class president who is meaner than she looks, and Youko Nishikawa, a former rich girl who still acts like a princess. Three very different girls who only share one thing: the kanji for leaf in their names. Balancing school and life is hard enough, but what about dealing with clashing personalities on top of it all?
