posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The October issue of Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday S magazine revealed on August 25 that Takeshi Kojima will end the manga adaptation of Koroku Inumura's The Pilot's Love Song (Toaru Hikūshi e no Koiuta) light novel series in the magazine's November issue on September 25. Kojima launched the manga in Shonen Sunday S in February 2014, and Shogakukan released the third compiled book volume on June 18.
Inumura's 2009-2011 five-volume light novel series is set in the same world as Inumura's To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku (Recollection of a Certain Airship Pilot/The Princess and the Pilot) novel and anime film, although it is set earlier with a different cast of characters.
The story of love and aerial combat follows a former prince who lost everything to a revolution, and a girl who became the symbol for the revolution. The orphaned prince, now renamed Kalel, embarks on a one-way journey to discover the ends of the heavens. Aboard the levitating island of Isura, he meets a girl named Claire.
