posted on by Anita Tai
Inio Asano revealed on Twitter on Friday that the next issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine will publish the last chapter of his Reiraku (Downfall) manga. This year's 16th issue goes on sale on July 28. Asano also announced that the compiled volume for Reiraku will be released sometime in the fall of this year.
The manga follows a manga artist who is divorcing his wife and editor. His soul is adrift and begins to fall into the "abyss."
Asano launched the manga in Big Comic Superior on March 10.
Viz Media has published Asano's previous series Solanin and What a wonderful world!, and is publishing the Goodnight Punpun manga. Fantagraphics Books published Asano's horror manga Nijigahara Holograph in 2014, and Vertical Comics published Asano's A Girl on the Shore manga last January.
