Black God/Kurokami Manga to End in 3 More Chapters
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 11th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine is announcing on Friday that Dall-Young Lim and Sung-woo Park will end their Black God (Kurokami) supernatural action manga in three more chapters. The manga has been running in the magazine since 2004, and Square Enix will publish the 19th and final compiled book volume on August 25.
The story revolves around a game programmer named Keita who gets caught in a battle being fought by Kuro. Kuro is a Tera Guardian — a Mototsumitama or a guardian who maintains the Coexistence Equilibrium. Kuro saves Keita's life during the battle and regenerates Keita's arm that Keita loses in the fight. This exchange creates a bond that unites the two in the battles ahead.
Yen Press will publish the 17th volume of the manga in North America in October. The manga inspired the Kurokami The Animation television series in 2009, and Bandai Entertainment released the series in North America between 2009 and 2011. The anime was the first anime to premiere on television in three countries (Japan, South Korea, the United States) within 24 hours of each other.
