posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
DeNA's free Manga Box smartphone and tablet app published the 43rd chapter of Seimaru Amagi and Minami Ozaki's Genji the Death's Friend (Tōkyō Genji Monogatari) manga last Saturday, revealing that Amagi will conclude the manga in the next chapter on March 28.
Manga Box describes the story:
"People often die around me." A series of bizarre "deaths" stalks Genji. While a string of haunting memories and mystery surround him, all rooted in his childhood. A dear friend, a murder, and a curse. As more and more "deaths" unravel, the horrifying truth behind the origin grows ever more entangled. Seemingly the only keys to solve these mysteries, are the charismatic shinigami Touya, and Genji's own memories.
Seimaru Amagi is one of many pen names for Tadashi Agi, the creator of GetBackers, Kindaichi Case Files, The Knight in the Area, and The Drops of God manga. Agi is also serving as editor-in-chief of the app. Artist Minami Ozaki previously worked on the Zetsuai 1989, Bronze: Zetsuai since 1989, and Debichiru ~Devil Children~ manga.
Seimaru Amagi first published Tōkyō Genji Monogatari as a novel in 2006 under his birth name of Shin Kibayashi, and launched a manga adaptation of the novel with Minami Ozaki in Manga Box last May. Kodansha published the third collected book volume of the manga on March 9. Manga Box publishes the series concurrently in both the Japanese and English versions of its app.
