12th volume slated for August 26

Manga creator Hotaru Odagiri resumed her manga The Betrayal Knows My Name (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru) in the July issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine on Tuesday. In addition, the magazine revealed that Kadokawa will publish the manga's 12th compiled book volume on August 26. Art from the manga is featured in the magazine's front cover (seen right).

Yen Press has released six omnibus volumes of the manga series in North America, and it describes the story:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches. As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named "Zess," whose face tugs on Yuki's memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death. But when Yuki's compassion leads him to disobey Zess's order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he's even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

Odagiri launched the manga in Monthly Asuka in 2005, and Kadokawa published the manga's 11th compiled book volume in October 2012.

The series received a 24-episode anime adaptation in 2010, and Crunchyroll streamed the series in various regions as it aired in Japan.

Digital Manga Publishing released Odagiri's other series Only the Ring Finger Knows, Invisible Boy, and Time Lag in North America.
