The author's notes in the ninth compiled volume of Shuji Sogabe's Persona 3 manga has a message that reads, "It hasn't finished. I'm sorrrrrrrry ... In the next volume, P3 will really finish." The ninth volume shipped on Wednesday.
The author's notes in the eighth volume teased in March 2015 that the manga "probably" would end in the ninth volume.
The story of the manga revolves around the protagonist Minato Arisato, who transfers to Gekkōkan High School. However, as he heads to his new dormitory, listening to the music on his headphones, he is stopped. More precisely, time has stopped, and the people who were around him turn into coffins. Minato learns that this period of time hidden between the minute of midnight is called the Dark Hour, a time when monsters called Shadows appear.
Sogabe began drawing the art for the manga adapting Atlus' PlayStation 2 game of the same name in February 2007 in Kadokawa's Dengeki Maō magazine, and it has been serialized irregularly.
The fourth and final anime film adapting the game, Persona 3 the Movie #4 Winter of Rebirth, premiered in Japan in on January 23.
