Brynhildr in the Darkness Manga Ends This Month

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Elfen Lied's Lynn Okamoto launched dark fantasy manga in 2011, inspired 2014 TV anime

This year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine announced on Thursday that Lynn Okamoto will end his Brynhildr in the Darkness (Gokukoku no Brynhildr) manga in the 18th issue on March 31.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the manga's television anime adaptation, and it describes the series:

Years ago, Ryōta Murakami's childhood friend Kuroneko claimed to have proof that aliens existed. But when tragedy strikes, Kuroneko dies and Ryouta is seriously injured. Now a high school student, Ryouta still looks to the stars in hopes of proving Kuroneko right. But when a new student who looks eerily similar to his deceased friend transfers into his class, Ryouta soon discovers that the answer to “is there life out there?” may be much closer than he thinks, and in a way he never expected.

Okamoto (Elfen Lied, Nononono) began the manga in Young Jump in 2011, and Shueisha published the 16th compiled volume of the manga on January 16.

The 13-episode television anime premiered in 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed it as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the anime on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with an English dub last October.
