posted on by Jabulani Blyden
The official Twitter account for DeNA's Manga Box app revealed on November 2 that the next chapter of Yuma Ando's Shinjuku DxD will be its last.
Manga Box announced the end of the manga in response to a fan's question concerning the manga's abrupt hiatus. Manga Box said it does plan to release the manga's final chapter in the future, but did not provide a specific date.
Manga Box describes Shinjuku DxD:
Kabukicho, Shinjuku – the district that burns with desire is struck by an incurable disease. In this district, a doctor, Inui Date, runs a small medical clinic. Night after night, patients with extraordinary cases come to the clinic, when one day, a troublesome patient, detective Maria Daigo, appears. Set in a Shinjuku that has been plagued by an incurable disease, the doctor and the detective become entangled in one mysterious case after another as they face the darkness in this psychological thriller. Will the two be able to save this town?
Yuma Ando is the pen name of Kindaichi Case Files and Drops of God manga author, Shin Kibayashi. (He also goes by other pen names such as Seimaru Amagi and Tadashi Agi.) Shinjuku DxD was his first new series since 2011's Sherlock Bones. Taiwanese artist Ponjea is drawing Shinjuku DxD and Takanori Yasaka is arranging the series. The manga debuted on the Manga Box in February 2014.
The original Kindaichi Case Files manga began in 1992, and has since inspired several anime and live-action projects. Tokyopop published part of the manga as well as GetBackers in North America. Vertical Comics released part of Drops of God, which inspired a live-action Korean drama adaptation, and Kodansha is releasing Sherlock Bones and Bloody Monday.
