posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's April issue of Square Enix's Shonen Gangan magazine announced on Saturday that writer Kyou Shirodaira and artist Eita Mizuno will end their Tengai-san wa Angai Futsū (She is more ordinary than I expected) manga in the next issue on April 12.
The story takes place in the city of Tokui, which has a legend of two monsters. Yūko Tengai transfers to the town's high school out of season in order to look for clues to clear her older brother of suspicion in a 10-year-old murder case. She teams up with her classmate Masaki Maki, who was in a coma for eight years, and her brother, who uses a robot to communicate to them from his zashikirō (Edo period-style room for confining criminals). But Yūko has a true form...
Shirodaira and Mizuno began the series in August 2015. Square Enix published the third compiled volume on January 21.
Square Enix streamed a promotional video last June:
Shirodaira and Mizuno previously published the mystery manga Spiral (Spiral - Suiri no Kizuna) which ended 2005, and the Spiral: Alive prequel manga, which ended in 2008. Yen Press published the original manga in English beginning in 2007. The series inspired an anime adaptation in 2002, and Funimation Entertainment released the series on DVD as one of its earlier titles.
