Fantasy adventure story launched in October 2016

Manga creator Julietta Suzuki posted on Twitter on Thursday that this year's third issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine published the final chapter of her Tripitaka Torinique manga on Thursday. The fourth and final volume will ship on March 20.

The "shōjo Journey to the West" manga is set in Tang dynasty China. Kaka is a girl who lives with the priest Genjō, and in order to save him she must travel to the capital Chang'an. Suzuki launched the series in October 2016, and Hakusensha published the third volume on December 20.

Suzuki launched the Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita) manga in Hana to Yume in 2008, and ended the series in May 2016 with 25 volumes. Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and released the 25th volume on October 3.

Kamisama Kiss inspired two anime seasons, and Funimation streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and also released both seasons on home video. The manga also inspired a series of four original anime DVDs (OADs) that shipped with the manga's 22nd-25th compiled volumes. A "volume 25.5," an official fanbook, shipped in December 2016, and bundled a DVD with an original anime, and a 32-page epilogue manga.

Update: The fourth and final volume will ship on March 20.
