This year's 13th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine is announcing on Saturday that Yoko Matsushita will draw a new chapter in her Descendants of Darkness (Yami no Matsuei) fantasy manga in The Hana to Yume spinoff magazine on June 25. Not only is Matsushita drawing the Descendants of Darkness Special Edition (Yami no Matsuei: Tokubetsu-hen) chapter, but she is also drawing the main characters Tsuzuki and Hisoka on the front cover of The Hana to Yume magazine.
Matsushita serialized the main Descendants of Darkness manga in Hana to Yume from 1994 to 2002. There was a eight-year gap between the 11th Descendants of Darkness book volume and the 12th volume, which shipped in Japan last January.
Viz Media published the 11th volume of the manga in North America in 2006. J.C. Staff animated a 13-episode television series from 2000 to 2001, and Central Park Media released the anime in North America. The anime has since run on America's Sci Fi Channel.
