Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee Manga to End in 20th Volume
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The 19th compiled volume of Hiroyuki Asada's Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee) manga was released in Japan on Saturday, and lists that the 20th volume will be the last. The volume will be released this winter.
The manga follows a boy named Lag Seeing, who makes deliveries as a "Letter Bee" messenger throughout a strange fantasy land. He is accompanied by Niche, who serves as his "Dingo" companion.
The manga began in Shueisha's Monthly Shonen Jump in 2006. After the magazine ended, the manga was briefly serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, and finally moved to Jump Square in 2007. Viz Media releases the manga in English in North America, and released the 17th volume last November.
The manga was adapted into an anime special in 2008, and inspired two television series in 2009 and 2010. Crunchyroll streamed both series outside of Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensedLink text and released both on home video in North America.
