Sequel series inspired live-action TV series by Takashi Miike in 2013

This year's 34th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is announcing on Saturday that Kōji Matsumoto's Higanjima: Saigo no 47-Hiai sequel horror manga will end in the magazine's next issue on July 28.

The manga takes place in the middle of the final battle between the human race and vampires. The protagonist Akira only has 47 days until Japan is turned into an island of vampires.

Matsumoto launched the continuation to his Higanjima manga in 2010, and Kodansha released the 15th compiled volume on July 4. The manga inspired a live-action television series that premiered in Japan on October 24. Takashi Miike (live-action Ace Attorney, For Love's Sake) served as chief director of the 10-episode series.

The original 33-volume Higanjima manga also inspired a live-action film in 2010. Funimation released the film on home video in North America in 2011.
