Last Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Manga Volume to Bundle Anime DVD
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 50th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that the limited edition of Hiroshi Shiibashi's 25th and final Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan manga volume will bundle an anime DVD on March 4, 2013. Shiibashi himself is supervising this new anime project which will tell the anticipated secret origin of the Nura clan. The limited edition will also include an exclusive postcard. The first anime DVD to be bundled with the manga will arrive with the 24th manga volume next month.
Shiibashi launched his three-chapter Aoi Rasen-Jō Saishū Kessen (Aoi Spiral Castle's Final Battle) story arc of the manga in the Summer issue of Shonen Jump Next! in August. The second chapter debuted in the Fall issue last month, and the final chapter will run in the Winter issue.
Viz will publish the 12th volume of the manga's original Weekly Shonen Jump run in North America next month; Hisashi Sasaki, deputy director of Shueisha's Shonen Manga Group and a former Weekly Shonen Jump Editor-in-Chief, said that "we will make sure" that the Shonen Jump Next! sequel run will be available in English as well.
