Hotaru Odagiri's supernatural manga inspired 24-episode anime in 2010

The September issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Asuka magazine announced on Wednesday that Hotaru Odagiri's supernatural manga The Betrayal Knows My Name (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru) will resume in the following issue on August 24. The series has been on hiatus since last October.

Yen Press has released five omnibus volumes (covering Japanese volumes 1-10) of the manga series in North America. The sixth is tentatively slated for release in September, effectively catching up with the Japanese releases. Yen Press describes the story:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches. As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named "Zess," whose face tugs on Yuki's memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death. But when Yuki's compassion leads him to disobey Zess's order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he's even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

The series received a 24-episode anime adaptation in 2010, and Crunchyroll streamed the series in various regions as it aired in Japan.

Digital Manga Publishing released Odagiri's other series Only the Ring Finger Knows, Invisible Boy, and Time Lag in North America.
