Coppelion Manga Creator to Draw Last Chapter Live in Free Seminar

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Final chapter to be published in February

Manga creator Tomonori Inoue will hold a free seminar at the Vantan Game Academy in Osaka where he will draw the last chapter of his Coppelion manga. The manga's editor will also be in attendance to answer questions. Inoue will hold the seminar on November 22 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Inoue will publish the last chapter in Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine in February. The manga entered its final arc in May.

The story is set in 2036, after radioactive contamination from a nuclear accident has put Tokyo under a blockade. Three high school girls have been sent to this dead city. Thanks to genetic engineering, the three girls have been impervious to radioactivity since birth. They form a special forces unit, codenamed "Coppelion," in the 3rd Division of Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force.

Inoue launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine in 2008, before it moved to Monthly Young Magazine in 2012. Kodansha published the manga's 24th compiled book volume on November 6. Crunchyroll is publishing the manga digitally in English.

The science-fiction military action series' television anime adaptation premiered in 2013. Weekly Young Magazine announced a Coppelion television anime in 2010, but the plans were put on hold after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster.

Viz Media streamed the anime as it aired in Japan and later streamed the series with an English dub. The distributor released the complete series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America in February.
