2nd volume of manga adaptation of film trilogy slated for fall

The August issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine published the last chapter of Nitaka Ichifuji's manga adaptation of the Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter) theatrical anime project on June 30. The manga's second volume will ship this fall.

The films debuted in Japan last year in March, April, and July, respectively. The anime films adapt Takahiro and illustrator BUNBUN's illustrated novel series Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru (Washio Sumi is a Hero). Project 2H is credited as the original creator, Takahiro (Minato Soft) is credited with the original plan designs, and BUNBUN is credited with the original character designs. Seiji Kishi, who directed the first anime season, is the chief director.

Ichifuji launched the manga in Dengeki G's Comic in June 2017. Kadokawa published the manga's first compiled book volume (seen right) last November.

The second season of the anime premiered last October and aired in two parts: Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō and Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Yūsha no Shō. The first part is a six-episode recut of the three Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō films. The second part is a direct sequel to the first season.

The first anime season's story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yūna Yūki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she's also a member of the "Hero Club," where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called "Vertex."
