posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The September issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Beam magazine revealed on Wednesday that Masatoshi Usune's Desert Punk (Sunabozu) manga will end in the next chapter in October. The magazine revealed in June that the manga would end in two chapters. The chapter on Wednesday is the first of the last two chapters.
Usune launched the manga in Monthly Comic Beam in 1997. The manga returned in 2004 with a new arc focusing on the original Desert Punk's young follower, Kosuna, but went on hiatus in 2005. The manga returned again in 2009 for another year but went on hiatus in 2010, returning again in 2013. Kadokawa published the manga's 21st volume in April 2019.
The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where a mercenary bounty hunter known as the "Desert Punk" journeys across the Great Kantō Desert where Tokyo once stood.
