A floor advertisement for the 200th and final volume of popular manga series "Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikoen-mae Hashutsujo," commonly known as "Kochikame," is seen near a ticket gate at JR Kameari Station in Tokyo's Katsushika Ward on Sept. 17, 2016. The series created by Osamu Akimoto ran in the Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine for 40 years, and its standalone volumes sold more than 150 million copies -- earning it Guinness World Records recognition as the comic series with the largest number of volumes. Both the 200th volume and the Weekly Shonen Jump edition carrying the series' final installment were released on Sept. 17. (Mainichi)
