A Silent Voice's final volume shipped in N. America on Tuesday

This year's 26th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed on Wednesday that Yoshitoki Ōima (A Silent Voice) will launch her new fantasy manga this fall. The issue shows a visual for the manga.

The magazine teases the manga with the text, "The knowing look, that passes through his eyes and tells of the world's kindness and severity, will wrench your heart."

Ōima began her A Silent Voice (Koe no Katachi) manga as a one-shot in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2011, and then turned the story into a full series in the main Shonen Magazine in August 2013. Kodansha published the manga's final chapter in November 2014. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in print in North America, and it released the seventh and final volume on Tuesday. Crunchyroll released the series in English simultaneously as Kodansha published new chapters in Japan.

Kyoto Animation is adapting the manga into an anime film with Naoko Yamada (Tamako Market, Tamako Love Story, K-ON's two anime seasons and anime film) directing. The film will debut on September 17.
