The popular football manga “Captain Tsubasa” will end its serialization with the publication of “Captain Tsubasa Magazine Vol. 20” in early April, after more than 40 years since the first serialization, according to the publisher, Shueisha Inc.

The decision is attributed to the fact that manga artist Yoichi Takahashi, 63, the manga’s creator, finds it difficult to continue drawing the work due to his declining physical strength and changes in the drawing environment, such as the shift to digital technology . .

‘Captain Tsubasa’ will end up as a manga, but Takahashi made it clear in a post that he will continue to create stories for the characters in the form of a rough draft or some sort of storyboard. Apparently it has yet to be decided how the new work will be presented and what medium it will be distributed.

Serialization of “Captain Tsubasa” began in 1981 in the manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga shows the growth of football prodigy Tsubasa Ozora and his rivals. The series has sold more than 90 million copies worldwide.

The manga also spawned many spin-off series such as the ‘World Youth’ series and the ‘Road to 2002’ series.
