News Kōji Megumi, Meebu's Acma:Game Manga to End in 22nd Volume (Updated)
posted on 2017-02-18 13:45 EST
The 21st compiled book volume of manga artist Kōji Megumi and story creator Meebu's Acma:Game manga revealed on Friday that the manga's 22nd volume will be its last. The 22nd volume is slated to ship on April 17.
The manga centers around Teruaki Oda, a high school senior gifted in smarts, looks, and money. This seemingly perfect scion of Japan's powerful Oda Group gets caught in a nightmarish game with the son of the Belmont mafia family's boss.
Megumi and Meebu launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in April 2013.
Kodansha Comics published all 11 volumes of Megumi's Bloody Monday manga. Megumi drew the Bloody Monday Season 2: Pandora no Hako and Bloody Monday: Last Season sequels.
Megumi happens to be the older sister of Dojin Work manga creator Hiroyuki. When Megumi launched Acma:Game in Weekly Shonen Magazine, Hiroyuki was serializing his Aho Girl manga in the same magazine. It is unusual for siblings to create manga in the same magazine; the last major example of this was when Tetsuya Chiba (Ashita no Joe) and his younger brother Tarō Nami serialized Ashita Tenki ni Naare and Hakkeyoi, respectively, in Weekly Shonen Magazine in the 1990s. Hiroyuki moved Aho Girl to Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in June 2015.
Update: This year's 12th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that the manga will end its serialized run in three chapters.
