posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ web manga site published the 43rd and final chapter of author Welzard and illustrator Katsutoshi Murase's Karada Sagashi Kai (Body Search Solution) on Friday. The manga's fifth compiled book volume will ship on March 4.
In addition, Murase will launch a new manga titled Arata Primal on Shonen Jump+ on February 8. Daisuke Oikawa is credited with the original story.
Welzard and Murase launched Karada Sagashi Kai in January 2018 after they ended the Karada Sagashi manga in December 2017. Welzard and Murase launched the Karada Sagashi manga in September 2014. Shueisha published the manga's 17th and final volume in February 2018.
The manga is based on Welzard's cellphone novel of the same name, which launched on the Keitai Shōsetsu Noichigo site in 2013. The novel centers on Asuka, a high school student who sees the apparition of a dead student named Haruka, asking Asuka to find her body. As the story progresses, Asuka and her friends attempt to find the eight scattered pieces of Haruka's corpse in the school, and learn more about the Red Person that is hunting them as they do so. The Red Person hunts students who are alone at school to kill them, and until they exit the school gates, the Red Person will keep appearing before them. When the Red Person kills a student, it scatters the student's body into eight pieces, and tasks another person to find the pieces in the school. If Asuka fails to find Haruka's body, the day will keep repeating and she and her friends will keep dying until they do.
