9th volume slated for spring 2017; manga inspired TV anime last year

The eighth compiled book volume of Osamu Takahashi's Isuca manga revealed on Tuesday that the manga's ninth volume will be the last. The ninth volume is slated to ship in "around" spring 2017.

The manga's story revolves around Shinichirō, a male student who gets a job as a housekeeper in order to pay his rent. While on the job, he accidentally releases a strange creature into the world, and he learns that his female employer named Sakuya Shimazu is the head of the Shimazu clan that hunts these creatures. Shinichirō cooperates with her to hunt down the monsters that are running loose.

Takahashi began the manga in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine in its first issue in 2009. The manga inspired a 10-episode television anime adaptation in January 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The manga's seventh volume bundled an unaired eleventh episode for the anime in August 2015.
