Manga creator Kairi Shimotsuki (Brave10, A Century of Temptation, Madness) announced on her official Twitter account on Thursday that she will end her Brave10 S and Subete ga F ni Naru -The Perfect Insider- manga in 2016.

Shimotsuki launched the continuation of her original Brave10 manga in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011. Tokyopop acquired Shimotsuki's first Brave10 manga series, but did not publish the manga before closing its North American publishing division in 2011.

The manga inspired a television anime adaptation in 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. NIS America released a Blu-ray box of Brave10 in 2013.

The manga's story reimagines the legendary adventures of the 10 brave warriors assembled by the warlord Sanada Yukimura in the year 1600, in the middle of Japan's tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era.

Shimotsuki's manga adaptation of Hiroshi Mori's Subete ga F ni Naru novel debuted last May. Kodansha released the first compiled book volume in Japan in October. Mori's original novel inspired a television anime last year, and a live-action television series also aired in Japan last year.

The story of the original novel revolves around Sōhei Saikawa, a member of the Saikawa Research Lab. He goes on a vacation held by the lab, and Moe Nishinosono, the daughter of his mentor, joins the group on their vacation despite not being a part of the lab. There, the two end up finding a corpse. The two work together to solve the mysteries of what becomes a serial murder case.

Shimotsuki launched the Joker Reboot manga last August. She ended her Makai Ishi Mephisto (Hell Doctor Mephisto) manga in February.

North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing licensed Shimotsuki's A Century of Temptation manga and published it in 2013. Tokyopop published Shimotsuki's Madness manga in 2009, and Udon Entertainment published her Devil Kings Basara manga in 2008.
