Atsushi Suzumi's Tokyo Ravens Manga Resumes in December
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The January issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine announced on Thursday that Atsushi Suzumi's Tokyo Ravens manga will return from its hiatus in the next issue on December 26. The series went on hiatus in the November issue in September.
The manga adapts Kōhei 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. Other manga adaptations of the Tokyo Ravens light novels include Tokyo Ravens: Tokyo Fox, Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song, Tokyo Ravens: Red and White, Tokyo Ravens: ANOTHER×holiday, and Tokyo Ravens: Girls Photograph. The fifth and final volume of Ran Kuze's Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song manga shipped on November 17.
A 24-episode TV anime adaptation of the light novels also premiered in Japan in October 2013. FUNimation Entertainment streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and also released the series on 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.
