The news of Weekly Shounen Sunday’s “Keijo!!!” coming to an end has been a hot topic, especially on the western web. While both the manga and anime performed quite poorly in Japan, Keijo found good success over in the West. This caused many western fans to be angry about the news of the manga ending so soon after the anime, and the fake story made up on /a/ about the manga getting axed due to anime’s poor sales spread like wildfire.
Thankfully, Daichi Sorayaomi, updated his blog today to share what really happened behind the scenes and all the horror stories of serilization.
One of the rising stars of Weekly Shounen Sunday, Komi-san wa Komyushou Desuis a story about an ordinary high school boy named Tadano Hito (literally Mr. Average) and Komi-san, the most beautiful girl in school.

Together, they hope to cure Komi-san’s lack of communication skill and work towards her dream of making 100 friends.
