Daisuke Moriyama's Mourning Bride Manga Cancelled
posted on by Alex Mateo
This year's September issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge magazine revealed on Saturday that Daisuke Moriyama's (World Embryo, Chrono Crusade) Mourning Bride manga has been cancelled. The announcement stated that the manga was cancelled due to "various reasons." It also noted that although the editorial department had discussions with the author and other staff members, they could not reestablish a relationship of trust.
The third compiled book volume's release has also been cancelled.
Moriyama launched the manga in Shonen Magazine Edge in May 2017. Kodansha published the first compiled book volume in January 2018 and published the second volume on June 17.
The story centers on the four brothers of the Corsarino mafia family: oldest son Alan, second son Bellini, third son Chris, and fourth son Dino. The brothers respond to a call from their grandfather, the Don of the family, to gather at the family home. When they arrive, the siblings learn of their grandfather's death. The will says that Marika, their grandfather's fiancé, will choose the successor to receive the inheritance.
