Silent Möbius QD Manga Approaches Climax

posted on by Karen Ressler
Sequel manga launched in 2013

This year's December issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine announced on Tuesday that Kia Asamiya's Silent Möbius QD (Quadriga) manga is approaching its climax.

The manga also announced in 2015 that it was approaching a climax, but the manga continued without taking a hiatus. The word "climax" written in the phonetic katakana alphabet often refers to the final chapter of a manga.

Asamiya launched the series in August 2013 and Kodansha will publish the fourth compiled volume in December 20. Kei Shigema, scriptwriter on the Silent Möbius film, assists with the manga project.

The story is set 17 years after Asamiya's original paranormal police manga Silent Möbius, which debuted in 1988. The original manga deals with Attacked Mystification Police (AMP), an elite all-female unit who protects Tokyo from Lucifer Hawks and other supernatural creatures in the 2020s. The new "special police battle fantasy" manga will feature a "reborn" AMP unit.

Viz published the 12 volumes of the original manga in North America in monthly issues and later in compiled volumes. Udon Entertainment announced in 2009 that it planned to republish the original manga as they were published in Japan, including the later Silent Möbius Tales and Silent Möbius Klein volumes, but the company has since only published the first four volumes of the original manga.

The first manga spawned two theatrical anime films and a 26-episode television anime series. Streamline Pictures released the first movie, while Bandai Entertainment released both movies and the television series. A new stage play adaptation ran this past March and April.
