Zettai Karen Children Manga Has 'Big News' Next Week

posted on by Alex Mateo

This year's sixth issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine teased on Wednesday that Takashi Shiina's Zettai Karen Children manga will have "big news" in the magazine's next issue on January 16.

The story of the manga follows a unique special-operations unit consisting of Kaoru Akashi, Aoi Nogami, and Shiho Sannomiya — three ten-year-old girls with paranormal powers — and Kōichi Minamoto, the hapless lieutenant who must supervise/babysit them. The manga later focused on the girls in middle school, and the dark premonition that has been made about their futures.

Shiina launched the "high school arc" as the final arc of the manga in August 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's 52nd volume in August 2018, and will publish the 53rd volume on January 18.

Shiina's sci-fi comedy series began in Shonen Sunday in 2005, and received a 52-episode television anime series in 2008, as well as a 2010 original video anime adaptation. Sentai Filmworks released the series in North America in 2012 under the name Psychic Squad. The Unlimited - Hyōbu Kyōsuke, a spinoff anime focusing on the series antagonist Kyōsuke Hyōbu, aired in 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in 2015.
