The second volume of Yuki Okada’s Daiya no C (Cat of Diamond) spinoff manga revealed last Friday that the manga will end with the third volume on February 17.
The humorous spinoff to Yūji Terajima’s Ace of Diamond (Daiya no A) manga revolves around the residents of the Seidou dormitory who find themselves tending to a cat. The trouble came when they had to learn how to feed it, bathe it and most importantly prevent anyone from finding out they were taking care of the pet against the hostel’s regulations.
Okada, Terajima’s wife, launched the Daiya no C manga on Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app on January 12.
Terajima launched the Ace of Diamond manga in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006. He ended the manga’s first season in January 2015, and Kodansha has published 47 volumes for the series. Terajima then released Ace of Diamond Act II in August 2015. The 32nd volume compiled for Act II was published last Friday. The fourth and fifth manga volumes were bundled with the anime DVD in 2016.
The main manga inspired a television anime that premiered in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the 75-episode series as it aired in Japan. Ace of Diamond: A Second Season premiered in April 2015, and Crunchyroll also streamed the 51-episode series as it aired. Ace of Diamond Act II inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in April 2019. The series has 52 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
The manga won the shōnen category of the 34th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2010. Kodansha USA Publishing began releasing the manga digitally in English in March 2017.
