Manga adaptation of crossover movie launched last August

The May issue of Shogakukan's Shōnen Sunday Super magazine announced on Wednesday that Yutaka Abe and Denjirō Maru's manga adaptation of Lupin III vs. Detective Conan The Movie will end on the magazine's next issue on April 25.

Yutaka Abe and Denjirō Maru launched the manga last August. The pair also drew the three-chapter manga adaptation of the 2009 Lupin III vs. Detective Conan television special.

The film crossover between Monkey Punch's Lupin III and Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan (Case Closed) opened in Japanese theaters in December 2013. In the film, the "Cherry Sapphire," an illusive secret treasure that holds the key to the entire world, will bring the two titular characters in a "head-to-head confrontation." Lupin is suspected of stealing the gem, and "when the truth is revealed, the curtain will open on the greatest battle in the world."
