Real Account Manga Enters Final Arc

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Manga creator Shizumu Watanabe posted on Twitter on Thursday that their and Okushō's Real Account manga has entered its final arc as of the latest chapter. The latest chapter debuted in the June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine on Thursday.

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English and it describes the manga:

Like many of his peers, Ataru Kashiwagi has found himself addicted to the newest social networking service, Real Account. But one day, Ataru and almost 10,000 other people, get sucked into the Real Account Zone, where they have become players in a series of deadly games. The basic rules of these games are simple—if you lose all your followers, you die in real life, and if you die, all of your followers die with you. As these depraved games decimate the players around him, Ataru must use quick thinking and his knowledge of Real Account to win each round and return to the real world. But when true friendship determines whether he lives or dies, can Ataru really survive when the only people he can count on are his Internet friends?

Manga creator Watanabe (Kono Kanojo wa Fiction desu) and writer Okushō launched Real Account in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in the February 2014 issue. The manga switched to Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2015, but switched back in June 2018. Kodansha shipped the manga's 22nd volume on January 9. Kodansha Comics released the manga's omnibus volume containing volumes nine to 11 last November. The manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation.

Ren Kanan will pen a Real Account 0 novel based on the manga that will ship on June 7.
