Manga adaptation of Akira Kareno's light novel series launched in June 2016

The June issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine revealed on Friday that Kaname Seu's manga adaptation of Akira Kareno's WorldEnd (Shūmatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka?) manga will end in the magazine's next issue on May 26.

Yen Press licensed the original light novel series, and it describes the story:

Hundreds of years ago, humanity was beset by otherworldly creatures only known as Beasts and utterly wiped out. The last human, Willem, wakes up in a world where everyone he has ever known or cared about has been dead for centuries. With nothing to live for, he's done nothing but drift from place to place. But in his lonely wanderings, he's discovered the identity of the greatest weapons ever made for the unending war against the beasts-fairies, destined to fight with everything they have, then die.

Seu launched the manga in Monthly Comic Alive in June 2016. Kadokawa shipped the manga's third compiled book volume last December.

Kareno launched the original novel series in 2014 with illustrations by ue, and published the fifth and final novel in April 2016. Kareno and ue launched the first novel in a sequel series titled Shūmatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Mō Ichido Dake Aemasu ka? (Do you have what THE END? May I meet you once again?) in March 2016, and the fifth volume in the new series shipped last November, with a sixth volume slated for June 1.

The light novel series inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in April 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed an English dub.
