Supernatural series based on Manabu Kaminaga's novels launched in 2009

The August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine published the final chapter of Suzuka Oda's Psychic Detective Yakumo manga on Friday. The issue included a color page.

The magazine's July issue announced in May that the manga would end. The series had gone on a temporary hiatus starting in April 2015 due to Oda going on maternity leave.

The manga's story follows Yakumo, a young man who can see the spirits of dead people with his red eyes. He uses this ability as a gift to solve murder cases, and is assisted by his classmate Haruka.

Oda launched the manga in Monthly Asuka in 2009. Kadokawa published the 13th compiled book volume in January.

The manga adapts Manabu Kaminaga's novel series of the same name. Since 2004, Kaminaga has written nine main volumes and three side story volumes. The story was adapted into a 2006 live-action television series, as well as several stage plays and two manga series. Ritsu Miyako drew one manga series in Hakusensha's Bessatsu Hana to Yume magazine from 2007 to 2008, and Hakusensha released two compiled book volumes.

The original novel series was also adapted into a television anime in 2010. Sentai Filmworks acquired the title in 2013, and released it on DVD that same year, and on Blu-ray in 2014.
