Atsushi Suzumi's Tokyo Ravens Manga Goes on Hiatus
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The October issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace announced on Wednesday that Atsushi Suzumi's Tokyo Ravens manga will go on hiatus starting in the next issue.
The manga adapts Kouhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series. The original school supernatural fantasy light novel series centers around Harutora, a boy from a branch of the Tsuchimikado family of onmyōdō occult practitioners. However, he lacks the ability to see spirit energy, so he is now just an ordinary high school student. Natsume, a girl who was Harutora's childhood friend and the next head of the Tsuchimikado family, reunites with Harutora and changes his future.
Suzumi (Venus Versus Virus, Nightmare Go Round) launched the manga in Monthly Shōnen Ace in 2010. Kadokawa published the manga's 11th compiled book volume on March 25. There are also several other manga adaptations of the Tokyo Ravens light novel, including Tokyo Ravens: Tokyo Fox, Tokyo Ravens: Red and White, Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song, Tokyo Ravens: ANOTHER×holiday, and Tokyo Ravens: Girls Photograph. A 24-episode TV anime adaptation also premiered in Japan in October 2013. Funimation Entertainment streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and also released the series in home video in North America.
Suzumi's own Venus Versus Virus manga inspired a 12-episode TV anime series in 2007. Del Rey acquired her Haridama Magical Cram School (Haridama Taimajuku) and Amefurashi: The Rain Goddess (Amefurashi) manga, and released them in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
