Darling in the Franxx 4-Panel Spinoff Manga Ends

posted on by Karen Ressler
Manga debuted alongside anime in January

The 72nd chapter of mato's DARLING in the FRANXX! four-panel spinoff manga announced on Tuesday that the manga will end with the next chapter on Wednesday.

Mato (The Emperor and I) launched the manga on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website and app on January 14, and it has updated on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays. The manga's title is DARLING in the FRANXX! written in the phonetic hiragana alphabet.

Studio Trigger and A-1 Pictures' original science-fiction anime premiered on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, GTV, and BS11 at 11:30 p.m. on January 13 and ended on Saturday. Crunchyroll streamed the series with English subtitles and Funimation is streaming an English dub. Kentaro Yabuki (To Love-Ru -Trouble-, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, Black Cat, Mayoi Neko Overrun!) launched the main manga adaptation of the series on January 14.

The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyōryū, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.

A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.
