Stan Lee, Hiroyuki Takei's Ultimo Manga Heads Towards Climax

posted on by Egan Loo
Climax to run in July in Jump Square magazine's new spinoff

The 18th issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. 19 magazine is announcing on Thursday that the climax of Stan Lee and Hiroyuki Takei's Karakuridōji Ultimo manga will run in July. The climax will run in the new spinoff of Jump Square magazine, which will launch that month to replace Jump SQ. 19. (Jump SQ. 19 is ending on Thursday.)

Takei began his Karakuridōji Ultimo manga in Jump Square in collaboration with Marvel Comics' Stan Lee in 2009. Shueisha shipped the 11th compiled volume in Japan in January, and Viz shipped the 10th volume in English on November 4. Viz describes the story:

With girl and money troubles, life is hard enough for high school student Yamato, but then he stumbles upon Ultimo, a peculiar-looking puppet. Things only get stranger when Ultimo awakens and his archenemy Vice shows up. Will this be the battle that finally decides good versus evil, or is this just the beginning of a most fantastic adventure?

Takei revealed in his manga essay in Shueisha's Coro Coro Aniki magazine last October that he will also end his Jumbor manga this year. In addition, Takei will begin a new series in the magazine titled Dash! Yonkurō on March 15, 2015 (pictured below). The magazine hints that Takei will tell a "new legend" of Hajiime Tokuda's Dash! Yonkurō manga, and that it will be "completely new."

Coro Coro Aniki also confirms that Takei's Shaman King: Zero series ended along with Shaman King Flowers in Shueisha's Jump X magazine in October.
