posted on by Karen Ressler
The March issue of Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine published the sixth and final chapter of Masato Ichishiki's Battle Spirits Double Drive Project Kimaira-hen manga last Friday. Ichishiki noted on Twitter that it is the final manga for the Battle Spirits Double Drive series.
Battle Spirits Double DriveProject Kimaira-hen launched in April 2018. Ishishiki previously drew the Battle Spirits Double Drive manga from 2016-2017 and the Battle Spirits Double Drive: Rokudai Kiseki-hen manga from 2017
Battle Spirits Double Drive is the eighth anime series in the franchise. The 51-episode anime aired from April 2016 to March 2017.
The anime begins when the protagonist, a red-haired elementary school boy named Shunta Mogami who loves the Battle Spirits game, is transported by a light from a Battle Spirits card to Spirits World, the origin of all Battle Spirits. He meets a girl named Eto, who claims to have summoned him to Spirits World in order to prevent its destruction at the hands of the revived Evil God-King, who once plotted the destruction of Spirits World before being defeated and sealed away. Together with the confident, green-deck-wielding Yoku Albatrosa, who also came from another world, Shunta sets out to find the twelve God-Kings whose power originally sealed the Evil God-King.
The Battle Spirits anime franchise launched with the 50-episode Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin series on September 7, 2008. The anime adapted Bandai's original trading card game, in which cards represent dragons, demons, birds, insects, and other spirits that the players can control in battles. Bandai imported the game to America in 2009.
