posted on by Alex Mateo
The November issue of Tokuma Shoten's Comic Zenon magazine revealed on Wednesday that Shinya Umemura, Chika Aji, and Takumi Fukui's Shūmatsu no Walküre (Record of Ragnarok) manga (pictured right) is getting a spinoff titled Ryo Fu Hō Sen Hishōden (The Legend of Lu Bu Fengxiang The Flying General) in the magazine's next issue on October 25. Takeo Ono is drawing the spinoff centering on the character Lu Bu. The manga will debut with color pages.
The Shūmatsu no Walküre manga launched in Comic Zenon magazine in November 2017. Umemura is writing the story, while Ajichika is drawing the art. Fukui is credited for composition. The fourth compiled book volume shipped on July 20.
The Shūmatsu no Walküre manga's story begins when the gods call a convention to decide whether to let humanity live or die, and settle on destroying humanity. But a lone valkyrie puts forward a suggestion to let the gods and humanity fight one last battle, as a last hope for humanity's continued survival. Thirteen gods will fight against 13 human champions in one-on-one battles to decide whether humanity lives or dies.
Umemura also provides the story for the Chiruran: Shinsengumi Chinkon-ka (Chiruran: Shinsengumi Requiem) manga, with Eiji Hashimoto drawing the art. The duo launched the series in the inaugural issue of Comic Zenon magazine in 2010. They launched a comedy spinoff manga titled Chiruran Nibun no Ichi in the magazine in May 2016. The spinoff manga received an anime adaptation that premiered in January 2017, and Crunchyroll streamed the series under the title Chiruran 1/2 as it aired.
