posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The December issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine revealed on Monday that Rei Hiroe will resume the Black Lagoon manga in the magazine in spring 2019. Hiroe is also launching the temporarily titled 341 Sentōdan (341 Combat Team) manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine in spring 2019.
Hiroe launched the Black Lagoon manga in Monthly Sunday GX in 2002. Shogakukan published the manga's 10th volume in May 2014, and published the manga's 11th volume on Monday. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America, and it released the 10th volume in April 2015.
The manga had resumed in May 2017 following a hiatus that began in early 2014, but then went on hiatus again in August.
Madhouse adapted the manga into two television anime series in 2006, and the Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail OVA in 2010. Geneon released both series on DVD in North America in 2007-2008, and Funimation re-released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012, and again in 2015.
Hiroe was also the original creator for the Re:CREATORS television anime series. He also provided the original character designs, and wrote and oversaw the scripts for the series. The 22-episode anime premiered in April 2017.
