The cover of the September issue of Kodansha's Aria magazine, which shipped on Saturday in Japan, reveals that it contains the final chapter of the K: Memory of Red manga. The issue also bundled a B2-size poster for the manga.
Rei Rairaku, one of the members of GoRA, composed the manga's story, and Yui Kuroe drew the art. The prequel manga centers on the Red King Mikoto Suoh, leader of HOMRA. The manga features a story that was not told in the television anime series.
Kuroe and Rairaku launched the manga in the same magazine in May 2012, and Kodansha published the second volume in March.
The cover of the September issue of Aria also notes that there is a "big announcement" regarding K: Memory of Red in the issue. The preview image for the October issue of Aria features the following tagline: "Don't miss the latest information for 'K -Days of Blue-'!!" The image does not specify any more information about "K -Days of Blue-."
GoRA and GoHands' K television anime series premiered last October. Viz Media streamed the anime in North America as it aired in Japan, and the company is also releasing the series on home video and streaming the series dubbed on Neon Alley. The anime project is also getting a film sequel in 2014.
