posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's sixth issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine announced on Saturday that Naoki Serizawa will end his Psycho Bank manga in the next issue on June 20.
Serizawa launched the manga in 2015. Kodansha shipped the second compiled volume April 6. The story follows high school student Mirai, who thought he could predict the future, until an overwhelming power turns his life around.
Serizawa is also irregularly serializing Sports Doctor "MAMA" (Mama wa Sports Doctor) in Nihon Bungeisha's Weekly Manga Goraku magazine. He announced in March that he is working on a manga adaptation of a project with a planned anime and game, after already working on some of the character designs for the anime and game.
Serizawa launched the Biohazard: heavenly island manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in January 2015, and he ended the series in February 2017. Serizawa also recently ended the Billion Dogs manga with author Muneyuki Kaneshiro. The fourth and final volume shipped in Japan in February 2017. DeNA's Manga Box app published the manga in both Japanese and English.
Serizawa's earlier Biohazard: Marhawa Desire manga launched with a prologue chapter in the inaugural issue of CAPCOM's CapBom! magazine in 2011, and the series ended in 2013. Viz Media published the five-volume manga in North America under the title Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire. Serizawa's Saru Lock manga inspired a live-action television series in 2009.
