Suehiro Maruo's Tomino no Jigoku Manga Ends
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The December issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Beam magazine published the last chapter of Suehiro Maruo's Tomino no Jigoku (Tomino the Damned) manga on Monday.
The manga's third compiled book volume previously revealed in April that the manga's fourth volume will be its last.
The manga centers on a set of twins with an older brother and younger sister. The twins were born with a set of odd matching birthmarks on their sides. After their mother abandoned them, their stepfather sold them off to a freak show. The story tells what becomes of the twins afterward.
Hiroshi Harada adapted Maruo's 1984 erotic horror manga Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show (Shojo Tsubaki) into an anime film in 1992. The manga also inspired a live-action film adaptation in May 2017. Blast Books published the manga's one compiled volume in North America in 1993. Maruo won the "New Artist Prize" of the 13th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prizes in 2009, although he has been drawing manga professionally since 1980.
