The action, dark fantasy, and supernatural thriller manga, written and illustrated by Gamon Sakurai, has finally ended. The final chapter of Gamon Sakurai‘s Ajin: Demi-Human manga was published in the March issue of Kodansha‘s Good! Afternoon magazine.
The manga reached its climax on January 7. Kodansha will ship the manga’s 17th and final compiled book volume on May 7.
This popular manga has inspired two TV anime, three anime films, OVAs, and a live-action film. Initially, the manga was written by Tsuina Miura but his name is not mentioned in the credits after the first volume because Gamon Sakurai has been the sole-creator of the manga since then.
Furthermore, Vertical Comics is releasing the manga in English! Crunchyroll is posting new chapters as Kodansha publishes them in Japan.
