Manga's 2nd volume ships this fall

The September issue of Hero's Inc.'s Monthly Hero's magazine revealed on August 1 that Masato Hisa's manga adaptation of the Batman Ninja anime will end in the magazine's next issue on September 1.

The manga's first volume revealed on March 5 that the second volume will be the series' last. The second volume will ship this fall.

Hisa (Nobunagun, Area 51) launched the manga in Monthly Hero's in June 2018.

Warner Bros. released the anime film digitally in April 2018, and on home video in May 2018. The release included the Japanese audio track as well as the English dub. The anime debuted in Japanese theaters in June 2018 with the Japanese voice cast.

Junpei Mizusaki, the producer of the opening animation sequences for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and Kamikaze Douga CEO/founder, was the film's director. Kazuki Nakashima, who was in charge of the series scripts for Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill, was the screenwriter. Takashi Okazaki, the creator of the Afro Samurai manga, was the character designer for the film. The project also involved English-language screenwriters Leo Chu and Eric Garcia, the executive producers for the Afro Samurai series and Afro Samurai: Resurrection film.

Kamikaze Douga worked on the project, and Yūgo Kanno (Psycho-Pass, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Ajin) composed the music. The anime's website stated the project was three years in the making.
