This year's second issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine (cover shown right) revealed on Friday that Yuuki Honda is ending the Tokyo Yamimushi -2nd Scenario- Pandora sequel manga in the magazine's next issue, which Hakusensha will publish on January 22. The final chapter will have a color opening page.
The story of the sequel manga revolves around Kō Nonomiya, a respectable, upstanding salaryman. One night, his subordinate Naoki Takahashi brings him to a cafe where Nonomiya becomes the victim of an outrageous ripoff. Nonomiya then meets Asamura, a debt collector who lives in Tokyo's darker recesses, and the salaryman comes face-to-face with the hidden, crime-ridden underworld of the metropolis.
Honda launched Tokyo Yamimushi -2nd Scenario- Pandora in Young Animal in 2013, and Hakusensha published the sixth compiled book volume (pictured at left) in July 2015. The seventh volume is slated for February 29.
A live-action film adaptation of the manga starring Ai Shinozaki premiered in Japan last April.
Honda's first Tokyo Yamimushi manga series, which ran in Young Animal from 2010 to 2013, already inspired a live-action film in 2014.
