The December issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine published the final chapter on Friday of Yuriko Asami's Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door manga. The final chapter featured a center color page in the issue. The manga's 11th volume will ship on December 17.
The same issue also announced that Asami will launch a new Angel Beats! manga series in the magazine next year that will serve as the "true arc." As with Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door, Jun Maeda is credited with the original story, and Na-Ga is credited with the original character designs. Maeda is additionally writing a new story for the manga.
Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door is a prequel to the anime series, and follows the formation of the Afterlife Battlefront. The story adapts the Angel Beats!: Track Zero light novel.
Asami began the series in Dengeki G's Magazine in 2010, but the series eventually moved to Dengeki G's Comic. Kadokawa shipped the 10th compiled volume on April 27. Kadokawa added the manga to its English ComicWalker website and app in 2014, and Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the series last year. The company released the manga's third compiled volume in North America on September 27.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the 2010 anime series and released it on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The Angel Beats! 1st Beat PC game shipped in Japan in June 2015.
