posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's November issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine announced on Thursday that Minari Endo's Hatenkō Yūgi manga will enter its final arc with its next chapter, which will be in the February issue on December 28.
Endo (Maria Holic) began the manga in 1999, and it has taken several hiatuses in recent years. Ichijinsha released the 18th compiled book volume in Japan in April. Tokyopop published part of the manga in English as Dazzle.
In Hatenkō Yūgi's story, the young teen Rahzel Anadis meets the handsome albino man Alzeid, who only cares about avenging his father's death. After Rahzel swears to him to make his life more fun and meet with their companion Baroqueheat the playboy, the three encounter secrets and mysteries that change their lives forever. Not even the travelers themselves know who they truly are.
A 10-episode anime adaptation aired in Japan in 2008. Sentai Filmworks announced this past March that it has licensed the series with plans to release it digitally and on home video. The company released the anime in a complete DVD collection on July 5.
