posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for LINK and Kotaro Shono's World’s End Harem (Shūmatsu no Harem) science-fiction manga announced on Sunday that the manga will enter its "second part" with a new title: Shūmatsu no Harem: After World. The second part will launch on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website on May 9.
The manga ended its first part with the 85th chapter in June 2020, and has been on hiatus since then.
The Man-Killer Virus: a lethal disease that has eradicated 99.9% of the world's male population. Mizuhara Reito has been in cryogenic sleep for the past five years, leaving behind Tachibana Erisa, the girl of his dreams. When Reito awakens from the deep freeze, he emerges into a sex-crazed new world where he himself is the planet's most precious resource. Reito and four other male studs are given lives of luxury and one simple mission: repopulate the world by impregnating as many women as possible! All Reito wants, however, is to find his beloved Erisa who went missing three years ago. Can Reito resist temptation and find his one true love?
The manga launched in May 2016 on the Shonen Jump+ website and app. Shueisha published the manga's 12th compiled book volume in August 2020. The manga franchise has more than 5 million copies in print.
The manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation that will premiere this year.
