The 10th volume of Manabu Kaminaga's Psychic Detective Yakumo (Shinrei Tantei Yakumo) novel series (shown right) revealed on March 23 that the novels' story is entering its final arc. The series' 11th volume shipped on Saturday.
The story follows Yakumo, a young man who can see the spirits of dead people with his red eyes. He uses this ability as a gift to solve murder cases, and is assisted by his classmate Haruka.
Kaminaga launched the series in 2004. The story was adapted into a 2006 live-action television series, as well as several stage plays and two manga series. Ritsu Miyako drew one manga series in Hakusensha's Bessatsu Hana to Yume magazine from 2007 to 2008, and Hakusensha released two compiled book volumes. Suzuka Oda also drew a separate manga adaptation that ran in Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine from 2009 until June 2016. Kadokawa published 14 volumes for the manga.
