MPD-Psycho Manga's 'Last Chapter' Debuts on Thursday
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The March issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine (cover shown right) is publishing the "Last Chapter" of Eiji Ohtsuka and Shou Tajima's MPD-Psycho manga on Thursday. However, the magazine will publish the manga's "The End+One" chapter in the magazine's next issue, which Kadokawa will ship on March 4.
The 21st volume of Ohtsuka and Tajima's series reported in December 2014 that the manga would end in the 22nd volume. Tajima then said on his official Twitter account last May that the manga will end with the 23rd volume. The 22nd volume shipped in Japan in July.
Ohtsuka and Tajima's manga about a detective with multiple personalities launched in 1997. Dark Horse Comics licensed the series in 2006 and the company has released 11 compiled volumes. The manga inspired a live-action television series by Takashi Miike that BCI/Eclipse released on DVD in North America and Crunchyroll streamed the series on its website.
Ohtsuka is also currently working on The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service manga and its spinoff Matsuoka Kunio Yōkai Taiji with artist Hosui Yamazaki, as well as the Todenka: Dai Ni Jū Go Setsu manga with Nato Kio.
North America's Dark Horse Comics published the 14th volume of The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service last July.
