This year's 38th issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine revealed last week that Yoshiyuki Nishi's Lycanthrope Bōken Hoken (Lycanthrope Adventure Insurance) manga will move to Shueisha's Tonari no Young Jump website. Nishi will begin serializing new chapters of the manga again sometime in mid-September.
The manga is set in a fantasy world of swords and magic, and centers on the titular Lycanthrope Adventure Insurance company. The company provides insurance and support to adventurers taking on the risk of going on a journey and finding a path through the darkness.
Nishi launched the manga in Young Jump last October. Shueisha published the manga's first compiled book volume on April 19.
Viz Media licensed Nishi's Muhyo & Roji's Bureau of Supernatural Investigation manga in North America, and it released all 18 volumes. Nishi launched the Mamono Kanteishi Babiro (Monster Appraiser Babiro) in Shueisha's Jump Next!! magazine in July 2014, but serialized it for less than a year. Nishi explained the following year that the manga's one volume sold better than expected but not enough to be a hit, so it could no longer run in Jump Next!! magazine. After searching for a new place to serialize the manga and not succeeding, Nishi decided to end the series for the time being.
