Manga creator Fujiko Dosei revealed on Twitter on Thursday that Chrono Ma:gia -Toki no Shōkansha to Shiraha no Hanayome, the manga adaptation of GungHo Online Entertainment's new digital card game Chrono Ma:gia, has ended its serialization. Dosei apologized and thanked fans for their support.
This year's 41st issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine confirmed on Wednesday that the manga has ended as of the magazine's 29th issue due to Dosei's poor health. The manga's compiled volume will ship on September 18. The 41st issue also stated that a new Chrono Ma:gia manga adaptation project is being planned.
Chrono Ma:gia -Toki no Shōkansha to Shiraha no Hanayome went on hiatus in the magazine due to Dosei's continued recovery from health-related issues. Dosei launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine on April 18.
GungHo Online Entertainment launched the game in English and Japanese on April 10. The company describes the game's story:
The Timesea: A realm ruled by the divine rulers of time... Set in Chronocardia, a pocket world floating on the Timesea, our tale chronicles the struggle between those Gifted with the power of the Magia...
