Real Account Manga Ends in 3 Chapters

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Kodansha Comics releases manga by Shizumu Watanabe, Okushō in English

This year's October issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine revealed on Monday that Shizumu Watanabe and Okushō's Real Account manga will end in three chapters, including the chapter that released on Monday. If the manga does not take any breaks, it will end in the magazine's December issue on November 9.

The manga entered its final arc in May.

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English and it describes the manga:

Like many of his peers, Ataru Kashiwagi has found himself addicted to the newest social networking service, Real Account. But one day, Ataru and almost 10,000 other people, get sucked into the Real Account Zone, where they have become players in a series of deadly games. The basic rules of these games are simple—if you lose all your followers, you die in real life, and if you die, all of your followers die with you. As these depraved games decimate the players around him, Ataru must use quick thinking and his knowledge of Real Account to win each round and return to the real world. But when true friendship determines whether he lives or dies, can Ataru really survive when the only people he can count on are his Internet friends?

Manga creator Watanabe (Kono Kanojo wa Fiction desu) and writer Okushō launched Real Account in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in the February 2014 issue. The manga switched to Weekly Shōnen Magazine in January 2015, but switched back in June 2018. Kodansha shipped the manga's 23rd volume on June 7. Kodansha Comics released the manga's omnibus volume containing volumes nine to 11 last November. The manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation.

Ren Kanan penned a Real Account 0 novel based on the manga that shipped on June 7.
