Glass Mask's Miuchi: Manga is Moving Along Toward End
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
When asked about when the manga will resume serialization and when the ending of the manga will come, Miuchi replied:
Little by little, it's moving along. Ever since I began serializing the manga, I just wrote the manga with the feelings of wanting everyone to read and have fun, get excited, and feel happy. That feeling has not changed, even now. It's taking a long time, but I have no intention to give up. Please watch over me until the end. I will complete [the manga], most absolutely.
Miuchi launched the manga in 1975, and it inspired a 1984 television anime series and a 2005-2006 anime remake, as well two live-action television series. There was also a three-part video series that started in 1998. Miuchi acknowledged in 2009 that she would end the manga "soon." The 50th compiled volume of the manga was delayed indefinitely last year, and the 49th volume was released in 2012.
The Flash anime studio DLE produced the first Glass Mask film, Glass no Kamen Desu ga the Movie Onna Spy no Koi! Murasaki no Bara wa Kiken na Kaori!? (It's Glass Mask But… the Movie: Female Spy's Love! The Purple Rose Has a Dangerous Scent!?), and the parody television anime Glass no Kamen Desu ga (It's Glass Mask But).
