posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine announced on Saturday in Japan that Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara's 07-Ghost gothic fantasy manga will end in the magazine's October issue on August 28. The manga will also be featured on the issue's cover.
The manga's story revolves around Teito, an orphaned slave with magical powers who enrolls in the military academy of the Barsburg Empire. However, he discovers his father's killers are in his school and flees. Teito gets caught in the larger struggle between Verloren, the God of Death, and the "beings of light" sent by Heaven: the Seven Ghosts.
Amemiya and Ichihara launched the manga in 2005, and Ichijinsha published the 16th volume in Japan in May. Go! Comi published the beginning of the manga in North America in 2008. Viz Media then picked up the license in 2012, and the company released the fifth volume in English earlier this month.
