posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's September issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine announced on Thursday that Kuro's manga adaptation of Yuu Kamiya and Tsubaki Himana's Clockwork Planet novels will end in next month's issue.
Kamiya (No Game No Life) and Himana launched the novel series with illustrations by Shino (Sunday Without God, Lance N' Masques) in 2013, and Kodansha published the fourth volume in December 2015. Kuro has been drawing a manga adaptation in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine since 2013, and Kodansha published the ninth volume on March 9.
Kodansha Comics licensed the manga, and will publish the eighth volume on July 31. J-Novel Club has licensed the original novel series digitally, and Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing J-Novel Club's translation in print.
Kodansha Comics describes the story:
Naoto's a high school dropout and brilliant amateur tinkerer. He lives in a world that has been so over-exploited that the entire surface has become one vast machine. When a box crashes into his home containing a female automaton, it's a harbinger of change that will rock the entire globe, and give Naoto his chance to be a hero.
The novels also inspired an anime in 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Funimation streamed an English dub. The two companies collaborated to release the series on home video on June 26.
