    The purpose of this thread is to have a complete list of 4-Koma manga that have been released in North America since it can be difficult to find one otherwise and a list of 4-Koma manga that you would like to be license. Also, it's a place to discuss and comment about any 4-Koma manga. It would be appreciated to have your help to complete the lists.

    1-page manga = a manga in which the length of one chapter or one sub-chapter is one page, the fraction that is 1-page manga will vary. It could be high or low.

    {} = Author
    [] = Original Japanese Publisher

    Yandere Kanojo needs to be added to the list. Probably should be counted as a hybird since it seems to mix normal and 4-Koma. Also, for the record Yandere does not refer to the usual. It's actually a combination of Yankee and Dere in this case. Yay for misleading names.

    It will be nice to have 1-6 of Sketchbook to go with the Ura Ban! volumes I have. Which means I'll have imported ten manga volumes in total.

    Oh, and time for the expected. Yen Press needs to announce more 4-Koma. This has been the expected.

            Hǎilلn's 3-Cap will be discontinued

            According to an article posted on his site, the Tokudane Sanmen Captors 4-koma manga by Hǎilلn, who created Tricolo (Tori Koro), will be discontinued.
            Dengeki Daioh carried Tokudane Sanmen Captors instead of Tricolo, which is still on hiatus practically.
            After the rumoured troubles with Hōbunsha and the transfer to MediaWorks, Hǎilلn is out of form and strays. I wonder where the manga artist, who was once called a 'Monster of 4 koma', will go.

              Yamato Toto wa kamisama dearu!

              Since the tankōbon of Yamato Toto wa kamisama dearu! was released, I bought and read it.
              When Sasane gave Toto cookies, Toto said, '地獄に仏とはこのことか!' That's funny.
               
              Yamato Toto is modelled upon Yamatototohimomosohimenomikoto, an ancient Japanese princess.
              Nihonshoki says:
               
              七年春二月丁丑朔辛卯、詔曰、昔我皇祖大啓鴻基、其後聖業逾高、王風轉盛。不意、今當朕世數有災害。恐朝無 善政、取咎於神祇耶。盍命神龜以極致災之所由也。於是天皇乃幸于神淺茅原、而會八十萬神以卜問之。是時神明 憑倭迹迹日百襲姬命曰、天皇何憂國之不治也。若能敬祭我者、必當自平矣。天皇問曰、敎如此者誰神也。答曰、 我是倭國域內所居神、名爲大物主神。時得神語随敎祭祀。然猶於事無驗。天皇乃沐浴齋戒、潔淨殿內而祈之曰、 朕禮神尚未尽耶。何不享之甚也。冀亦夢裏敎之、以畢神恩。是夜、夢有一貴人。對立殿戸、自稱大物主神曰、天 皇勿復爲愁。國之不治、是吾意也。若以吾兒大田田根子令祭吾者、則立平矣。亦有海外之國、自當 歸伏。

                Hikawa Hekiru's Pani-Poni will end

                According to messages posted on Twitter by Hikawa Hekiru,
                Pani-Poni will end in September, and Volume 17 of tankōbon will be the final volume.

                  Re: Hikawa Hekiru's Pani-Poni will end

                  Ah, so Pani-Poni is coming to an end. Not that I've read much of the manga. I wonder how far the anime got. It's hard to tell with anime sometimes. One minute five episodes isn't enough to cover a single volume. The next minute, five episodes covers at least two volumes.

                    Re: Hikawa Hekiru's Pani-Poni will end

                    Since Pani-Poni is rather different from Pani Poni Dash!, in a sense it might be better to regard Pani Poni Dash! as a 'the same characters and setting, but different scripts' version.
                     
                    Since Pani-Poni is rather an offbeat manga, I kind of doubt whether a North American publisher dares to release an English edition of it.

                      Re: 4-Koma manga Master list & Discussion

                      Just to be clear, volume 5 of "With Liz" is the last one right? Running the page through a translator seems to potentially indicate so, but as usual those things are suspect. I wonder how manga companies feel about licensing finished series in Japan. My hope is that knowing there's an end in sight might encourage them, but you never know...

                      Also, I have to wonder. Which country is Liz supposed to be from anyway?

                        Yes, the tankōbon are 5 volumes.

                        As to Liz's country, it is not clearly mentioned. It is described as a Northern, cold country, though.

                            Thank you for the update.
                             
                            Bandai was licensed to publish the English edition of Nichijou, which is an offbeat manga. Hmm...does it suggest that a North American publisher may be going to dare to get the licence to release the English edition of other offbeat manga titles such as Pani-Poni and Harumination?

                              Well, since they licensed the anime also, I'm not sure we can raise our hope about that. But who knows.
