Patlabor/Birdy's Masami Yuuki to End Hakubo no Chronicle Mystery Manga
posted on by Kevin Yuan
The 10th compiled book volume of Masami Yuuki's (Birdy the Mighty, Mobile Police Patlabor) Hakubo no Chronicle manga series revealed last week that the series will end in the 11th volume, which Shogakukan will ship in early summer.
Yuuki launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in August 2013 as his first weekly series in ten years. The story of the series follows a newly hired female public official named Akari Fushiki who, along with a boy obsessed with crime, solves mysterious deaths.
Yuuki launched his ongoing Disu x Komi manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Spirits magazine in April 2013 as his first new series in a decade. The series runs irregularly, and Shogakukan shipped the manga's second compiled book volume on Monday.
Yuuki's Tetsuwan Birdy Evolution (Birdy the Mighty Evolution) series ran from 2008 to 2012 in Weekly Big Comic Spirits. The series is a sequel to his Tetsuwan Birdy (Birdy the Mighty) manga remake that ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Young Sunday and Big Comic Spirits magazines. The manga versions of Birdy the Mighty have not been released in North America, but the various anime adaptations, as well as Yuuki's Mobile Police Patlabor manga, have been.
