posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine revealed on Wednesday that Takeshi Okano and Sho Makura's Jigoku Sensei Nube Neo (Hell Teacher Nube Neo) sequel manga will end in the magazine's next issue on December 5.
The original Jigoku Sensei Nube manga series centers around Nube, a young male teacher whose left hand is an "oni hand." He resolves cases by using the power of his left hand to purify evil spirits. The sequel centers on both the titular character Nube, as well as Kyōko Inaba, a former student of Nube who has now grown up and become a teacher, too.
Okano and Makura launched Jigoku Sensei Nube Neo in Grand Jump in May 2014. Shueisha published the manga's 16th compiled book volume on October 4, and will ship the 17th volume on January 4.
Makura and Okano serialized the original manga from 1993 to 1999 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. They later published a one-shot manga titled "Jigoku Sensei Nube: Ōmagatoki" in Grand Jump in April 2014, 15 years after the original manga ended.
The original manga inspired a television anime series, a video anime series, and three anime films. It also inspired a live-action series adaptation in 2014.
