Majestic Prince Manga Returns From Hiatus
posted on by Justin Piselli
Rando Ayamine and Hikaru Arashima's Majestic Prince manga resumed publication in the December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's magazine on Friday. The manga's 14th compiled volume will ship on December 29.
The manga went on hiatus in August due to health reasons for Arashima.
The franchise's story follows humanity after it expanded its frontier into space in a quest for resources. Advances in genetic engineering research allow humans to adapt to the new frontier, leading to the advent of evolved children such as the protagonist Izuru. Izuru enrolls in an academy city called Gurantseere to fulfill his mission of "protecting humanity."
The franchise began as a multimedia project from Fields. Ayamine and Arashima launched the manga in Monthly Hero's in 2011, and Shogakukan published the manga's 13th compiled book volume on April 5. A television anime ran for 24 episodes in 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the anime on home video in North America in 2014 with an English dub.
The franchise received a new film last November, as well as a brand-new "episode 25" for the television anime last September to bridge the plot of the television anime to the new film.
