posted on by Karen Ressler
The August issue of Mag Garden's Comic Blade announced on Monday that 5pb. and Keiji Asakawa's Robotics;Notes manga adaptation will end in the magazine's next issue, which ships on July 30. The series launched in 2012, and Mag Garden published the fifth compiled volume in May.
The manga adapts Nitroplus and 5pb.'s third science adventure series, after Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate. The orignal Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games also inspired an anime, stage play, and PlayStation Vita port. Funimation Entertainment licensed and released the anime series in North America.
The story is set in an alternate future world after Tokyo's Shibuya district was destroyed in 2009, followed by the destruction of the Radio Kaikan building in Tokyo's Akihabara a year later. The world is immersed in realistic augmented reality technology in 2019, but a high school robotics club is in danger of being disbanded after shrinking to just two members. The club's revival is tied to the robot it is building.
