posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The cover of the 20th issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Comic Kwai magazine has revealed that the issue will publish the 10th and final chapter in Aki Shimizu and Natsuhiko Kyogoku's Kyōkutsu no Yume mystery manga on October 24. Shimizu is adapting Kyogoku's novel of the same name. Kadokawa Shoten released the fourth compiled volume in the series in July.
Kyōkutsu no Yume is a sequel to Kyogoku's previous Mōryō no Hako novel, which Shimizu also adapted into a six-volume manga series. MADHOUSE also adapted the Mōryō no Hako novel into a television anime series in 2008 and a video anime in 2009.
In the same issue of Comic Kwai, the duo will also start a new arc in their Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro detective manga series. The Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro manga adapts Kyogoku's Hyakki Yagyō novel series about Japanese yōkai. The third volume in the manga series will ship on October 24. The new arc is subtitled "Gotokuneko," which is the name of a type of cat yōkai.
Tokyopop previously published Shimizu's Qwan manga in North America, and Shimizu provided the art for the Suikoden III manga, which Tokyopop also published. Kyogoku also wrote the original novels that inspired the Loups-Garous and Requiem from the Darkness anime.
