posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The April issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine revealed on Friday that Kei Sanbe will begin serializing a spinoff of his Boku dake ga Inai Machi manga in the magazine's July issue on June 4. The spinoff is tentatively titled Boku dake ga Inai Machi Gaiden. Kei Sanbe concluded the original manga in this Friday's issue of Young Ace, and art from the manga adorns the issue's front cover (seen right). The manga's eighth and final volume is slated to ship on May 2.
The story follows Satoru, a struggling manga artist who has an ability that forces him back in time to prevent deaths. When his mother is killed, he is sent back in time to solve the mystery, but ends up back in elementary school just before the disappearance of his classmate Kayo.
An anime adaptation of the manga titled ERASED in English premiered on January 7. Aniplex of America has licensed the series, and Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Funimation are all streaming the series as it airs.
Director Tomohiko Ito posted on the anime's official Twitter account in February that the show will portray the original manga's ending. The anime is listed with 12 episodes, and is slated to end on March 24.
Sanbe began the original manga in 2012. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on December 26. The manga was nominated for the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize 'Reader Award' in 2014 and last year's Manga Taisho Awards.
