Author: Akimoto Osamu
Artist: Akimoto Osamu
Genres: Comedy ComedyShounen ShounenSlice of Life Slice of Life
Type: Manga (Japanese)
Status: Ongoing
Description: The typical Kochikame plot involves Ryo-san coming up with a money-making scheme by inventing a new gadget or capitalizing on a fad, achieving great success, calling on Nakagawa's help as things turn sour, and finally losing it all as the fad runs out of steam or out of control. While the plots are gag-driven, much of the humor comes from the juxtaposition of mundane characters with the bizarrely incongruous (Nakagawa's wealth, Maria's appeal, everyone's lack of actual police work), most of which is never explained or rationalized in the slightest.

200 volumes. 200 VOLUMES!!! Geez, I still can't believe it's over.

So many SHOUNEN JUMP series ended this year. AssClassroom, Bleach, Nisekoi, Toriko... and now this legendary long-running series. Oh man!

Can anyone give explanation from page 25 who is drawing which Ryo-san in the spread page? I can only recognize Oda, Horikoshi, and Shimabukuro's drawing.

Late reply,

Surprisingly, I know and read 90% of them (if you include Kochikame with 24/1000++ chapters scanlated and #14 and #15 with only 1 chapter). No idea about #20 and I'm not reading #19 currently.

It should be all current Jump artists.

40 years without missing an issue. now that's what you call work ethic. dang.

Nice final chapter. Too bad that, considering we don't have a lot of chapters translated, we hardly know any of these characters.

And so a legend comes to a close...

 

With this, there will be only one continuously running manga from older generations left in WSJ: One Piece (yes, there's HxH too but that's a different matter).

 

Gintama and Toriko are the next oldest ones after OP, but sadly both will be ending soon as well. Saiki, Haikyuu!!, and Shokugeki are the next oldest ones all at 4 years old. The rest of the manga in Jump are much younger. It's incredible to think that just 5 years ago, Jump was almost a completely different magazine...

 

Farewell to a legend and thanks for 40 years worth of enjoyment, Akimoto-sensei.

This is... sad, something really grand has ended. Last few years marked end of great (and less great but still popular) manga which went for years. What are we left with? Berserk? Golgo 13? Hajime no Ippo? And there are few series which started later in 90's.

But that moment when i realize that One Piece sold almost 3 times more volumes...

End of an era. Kochikame is finishing its run on volume 200.

Some interesting tidbits now:

* Kochikame has been around since Gerald Ford was president, before Nintendo worked on video game consoles, and before John Cena was born.

* Kochikame has seen both the beginnings and endings of Fist of the North Star, Kinnikuman, Dragonball, Saint Seiya, Slam Dunk, the first seven parts of Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, Yu Yu Hakusho, Naruto, and Bleach. It is also the only manga besides Slam Dunk to have a cover page commemorating its ending (for example, Ruroni Kenshin didn't get one because it ended the same week Naruto debuted).

* Nearly every Jump author you can think of has done some tribute to Kochikame in some form during one of its anniversaries. The 30th anniversary had Ryotsu making cameos in every other chapter in the magazine (one of the marines in Enies Lobby, a zombie in Gintama, etc).

* At 200 volumes, Kochikame is one of the longest-running weekly manga of all time (some manga has run for longer, but with not nearly as many chapters). And Osamu Akimoto has never missed a single week of publication.

* It's fucking older than Garfield. GARFIELD.

* After this year, it's quite possible that Haikyuu will be the third longest running manga published in WSJ.

* Despite its longevity, this 1000+ chapter series only has 24 chapters translated.

It's not like most anyone our age in Japan has read the whole thing. Sounds good to me.

We really need a translator for this series. Know anyone who can help? Please contact us at admin@fos-scans.com :)

Because this series is so long, we thought that people would like it more if we started from a newer chapter. Hopefully it's not too jarring!

Suddenly, chapter 1674

The Dj chief chapter was hilarious! When will the next chapter come out?

Edit: Oh, a new chapter!!

Suddenly, chapter 1674

I'm surprised. You'd think that a series that has been around since the 70s would have more translated chapters.

Only 1,697+ more chapters to go. I want it on my desk by Wednesday.

Well precisely 1826+ chapters to go. Oh hell god

More recent manga series frequently include shout outs to Kochikame.  It is one of those series you should know something about, just so you will get the references in other series.  Almost any series that includes a mangaka character or plot will have at least one reference to Kochikame, usually something about how the character's goal is to have his/her series publish as many volumes as Kochikame.  That is usually played for laughs, given how unlikely it would be.

 

It's kind of scary to think that it started serialization the same year I graduated from college - 1976.  It has sold over 155 million volumes so far. . .

No. 190 volumes

I actually want to read this manga. There has to be a reason this was serialized for so long. The only problem is the scanlation would take way too long. TT_TT

well it has over 46 years of non-stop serialisation
Just realized that the author just had his 70th birthday 2 days ago... ...How long you bet this manga will last? Can it bypass the 200 volume mark?(calculating that it's 3-4 volumes per year, it might be possible after all...)

Talk about reading this from chapter one! ... ...Just think how many...years the scanlations might take, well.
this manga is quite well known, even got it's own anime itself. sources http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kochira_Katsushika-ku_Kameari_K%C5%8Den-mae_Hashutsujo
While the first translations in 2009 didn't get much following in the west, I've been seeing it on Shounen Jump covers ever since I started reading scanlated manga; according to Baka-Updates it's currently 180 volumes and counting...
i know what you mean lol. i was like this manga i've never heard of is almost 40 volumes longer than hajime no ippo which has almost 1000 chapters? no way. its more than likely just a mistake lol.
