Manga set in marine city where humans, robots coexist launched in 2014

Gun Snark (Attack on Titan: No Regrets) and Mitsuru Ohsaki (Onimusha: Night Of Genesis) published the 90th and final chapter of their Ptolemy's Singularity (Tendō no Singularity) manga on November 2.

The manga is a spinoff of Satoshi Hase and redjuice's Beatless novel. Tokyo Otaku Mode published the manga's first 14 chapters in English, and Kadokawa's ComicWalker website is publishing chapters of the manga in English as they are released. Tokyo Otaku Mode describes the manga:

Megafloat: a city built on Tokyo Bay that serves as a base of operations for businesses in Asia. Amidst this city, which acts as a monitor with the latest “holoprojection technology” used throughout, is a boy who uses an art that he calls “magic”: Kaito Tendo. What will his “magic” bring to this sci-fi world where hIE (humanoid robots) and super-advanced AI are the norm?

Gun Snark and Ohsaki launched the manga in Kadokawa's Famitsu Comic Clear website in 2014. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on April 13.

Hase serialized the Beatless novel in Newtype in 2012. The artist redjuice (Guilty Crown, The Empire of Corpses, Genocidal Organ, Harmony character designs) provided the illustrations for the original novel, and WIT Studio (Attack on Titan, The Ancient Magus' Bride) and animator Satoshi Kadowaki (chief animation director for Guilty Crown and Attack on Titan) provided "animation versions" of the illustrations for the English version. Tokyo Otaku Mode serialized English translations of the novel in 2014. The novel inspired a television anime that premiered on January 12 in the "Animeism" programming block. Its final three episodes aired in September after a hiatus since June. Amazon is exclusively streaming titles from the Animeism block to 200 countries through its Amazon Prime Video service.
