Tokyo Ravens Sword of Song Manga's Final Volume Ships in November
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Niconico website is listing that the fifth and final volume of Ran Kuze's Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song manga will ship on November 17. While Niconico published the manga's 22nd and penultimate chapter for free on August 26, the chapter had revealed that the final chapter will only be available in the fifth compiled book volume.
Kuze (Tenshin - World War Angel) launched the manga in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Rival magazine in October 2013, but the magazine ended publication in June 2014. The manga then started its online serialization on Niconico in July 2014. Kodansha shipped the manga's fourth compiled volume on Friday.
The manga is a spinoff of Kouhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens school supernatural fantasy light novel series. The original 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.
Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song follow's Harutora's upperclassman Akito Yakumo and the twin shrine maidens Yūka and Hina Kinobe.
The novel series inspired a 24-episode TV anime that premiered in October 2013. Funimation streamed the series as it aired, and it released the series on home video in two parts in April and July, respectively.
The light novel series has also inspired several other spinoff manga.
