posted on by Karen Ressler
Online retailers Amazon and Honya Club are listing the 10th compiled volume of Yu Yagami's Those Who Hunt Elves Two (Elf o Karu Mono-tachi 2) manga as the final volume. The book will ship on January 11.
The story, which is not the same as that of the similarly named anime Those Who Hunt Elves 2, reunites elf Celsia Marie Claire with three travelers from Japan: the martial artist Junpei Ryuzoj, the Oscar-winning actress Airi Komiyama, and the military otaku student Ritsuko Inoue. The three had scoured a fantasy world for elves, since undressing elves will reveal the spell they need to return home. This time, they are joined by a mysterious girl who says she is Junpei's little sister.
Yagami serialized the original Those Who Hunt Elves manga in Monthly Dengeki Comic GAO! magazine from 1994 to 2002. He already created a brief sequel called Those Who Hunt Elves Returns in the same magazine from 2007 to 2008. The original manga also inspired two television anime series.
ADV Manga released part of Those Who Hunt Elves in North America, while ADV Films released the two television anime series. Go! Comi released Yagami's Hikkatsu! manga, and CMX Manga released two other manga by Yagami: Dokkoida?! and Go West!
