posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will publish the final chapter of Tomohiro Yagi's Red Sprite manga on Monday. The issue notes that the manga's first volume will ship on December 31, with the second volume slated for March 3.
Viz Media previewed the manga's first three chapters in its digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and it then added the manga to its weekly lineup. The company describes Red Sprite:
The land of Edenia is transformed overnight by the discovery of plasmarrow, an incredible power source responsible for new inventions and greater prosperity. Unbeknownst to the general public, a dark secret lies behind it all... People are being sucked dry of their life force to exponentially supercharge the plasmarrow's power! And there are more sinister plans in the works — seven very special children are being experimented on who can potentially become even greater sources of energy.
