Adaptation of Kouhei Azano's light novels began in 2010

The August issue of Kadokawa's Shōnen Ace magazine revealed on Monday that Atsushi Suzumi will end the Tokyo Ravens manga in the magazine's next issue in July.

The manga's 14th volume previously revealed in March that the 15th volume would be the last.

The manga adapts Kouhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series. The original school supernatural fantasy light novel series centers around Harutora, a boy from a branch of the Tsuchimikado family of onmyōdō occult practitioners. However, he lacks the ability to see spirit energy, so he is now just an ordinary high school student. Natsume, a girl who was Harutora's childhood friend and the next head of the Tsuchimikado family, reunites with Harutora and changes his future.

Suzumi (Venus Versus Virus, Nightmare Go Round) launched the manga in Monthly Shōnen Ace in 2010. BookWalker has released 11 volumes of the manga digitally in English.

Other manga adaptations of the Tokyo Ravens light novels include Tokyo Ravens: Tokyo Fox, Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song, Tokyo Ravens: Red and White, Tokyo Ravens: ANOTHER×holiday, and Tokyo Ravens: Girls Photograph.

A 24-episode TV anime adaptation of the light novels also premiered in Japan in October 2013. FUNimation Entertainment streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and also released the series on home video in North America.

Suzumi's own Venus Versus Virus manga inspired a 12-episode TV anime series in 2007. Del Rey acquired her Haridama Magical Cram School (Haridama Taimajuku) and Amefurashi: The Rain Goddess (Amefurashi) manga, and released them in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
