Masashi Kishimoto’s Samurai 8 Manga Comes to Abrupt End

It was announced that Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto’s latest manga series, Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru, will be coming to an end. The manga debuted in May of 2019 and will be ending with the 43rd chapter. This will give the manga series a total of 5 total volumes, a far cry from the 72 volumes that Naruto lasted.

Kishimoto stated previously that he aimed for the series to run for 10 volumes. Looks like it wasn’t received well enough to hit that goal.
