posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Manga creator Suzue Miuchi confirmed on Twitter on Saturday that she plans to continue drawing her Glass Mask (Glass no Kamen) manga up until its final volume. She added once the manga's new serialization publication is decided, she will announce it on Twitter.
Hakusensha announced the fates of several of the manga that had been running in the magazine on Saturday, but did not state what would happen to Glass Mask.
Miuchi launched the manga in 1975 in Hana to Yume, and the manga moved to Betsuhana in 2008. Miuchi stated in 2014 that the manga was moving closer to the ending. Hakusensha published the manga's 49th volume in 2012, but delayed the manga's 50th compiled volume indefinitely in 2013.
The manga inspired a 1984 television anime series, a 2005-2006 anime remake, two live-action television series, and a three-part video series that started in 1998. Flash anime studio DLE produced a parody television anime titled Glass no Kamen Desu ga (It's Glass Mask But) in 2013, as well as the first Glass Mask film, Glass no Kamen Desu ga Onna Spy no Koi! Murasaki no Bara wa Kiken na Kaori!? (It's Glass Mask But: Female Spy's Love! The Purple Rose Has a Dangerous Scent!?), in the same year. A 3D spinoff television series titled 3-Nen D-Gumi Glass no Kamen premiered in October 2016.
