Manga artist Ren Saizaki announced on Wednesday that the Zetsuen no Tempest: The Civilization Blaster manga's main story is ending in the April issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine on March 12. However, Saizaki with writer Kyo Shirodaira and story collaborator Arihide Sano are continuing with a spinoff story.
The main story centers around Yoshino Takigawa, an ordinary high school student with a mysterious friend named Mahiro Fuwa. Mahiro made a deal with a witch named Hakaze to hunt down the killers of his parents and sister. Now Mahiro is missing, and Hakaze confronts Yoshino. Yoshino finds himself involved in a crisis that may doom the entire world.
The manga debuted in Monthly Shonen Gangan in 2009, and Square Enix published the eighth book volume last month. The fantasy mystery manga inspired a television anime series last Fall that is still ongoing. Aniplex of America is streaming the anime on Crunchyroll under the title Blast of Tempest.
