The sixth compiled book volume (seen right) of Yukinobu Hoshino's Rainman supernatural manga series revealed on Monday that the manga's seventh volume will be its last.
Shogakukan's Big Comic magazine teased the manga's plot:
Taki Amamiya is notified of the sudden suicide of his twin that he never even knew existed. But to Taki, who works reluctantly at the Parapsychology Research Institute, it was only the prelude to a more shocking chain of events. After following the recommendation from police to investigate the matter more in depth, they found a surprising fact: Taki has no brain.
Hoshino also created the 2001 Nights science fiction manga series, which he originally serialized in Futabasha's Monthly Super Action magazine in 1984-1986. Viz Media released the three-volume manga in North America. The manga was adapted into an original video anime (OVA) of the same name in 1987, and another OVA titled TO (2001 Nights) in 2009. Funimation licensed and released the 2009 OVA in North America in June 2011 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD and again on DVD in July 2015. UK distributor Manga Entertainment released the OVA in the United Kingdom on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in August 2011.
