posted on by Alex Mateo
Kōji Megumi (Bloody Monday) revealed on Twitter on Friday that he has finished drawing the final chapter of Kangibanka, his manga based on Shōgo Imamura's Jinkan novel.
Megumi launched the manga in November 2020. The manga's second compiled book volume shipped on April 16, and the third volume will ship on July 15.
Jinkan tells the story of the historical figure Matsunaga Hisahide, often portrayed as one of the most villainous figures in Japan's Sengoku period. The book tells Matsunaga's rise from poverty into one of the warlords competing for supremacy in Japan, until his eventual suicide after his defeat at the hands of Oda Nobunaga. The novel was nominated for the Naoki Prize for literature.
Kodansha Comics published all 11 volumes of Megumi's Bloody Monday manga. Megumi drew the Bloody Monday Season 2: Pandora no Hako and Bloody Monday: Last Season sequels.
Megumi and Meebu launched the Acma:Game manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in April 2013, and ended it in 2017 with 22 volumes. Megumi and writer Sora Karin launched the This Man: Sono Kao o Mita Mono ni wa Shi o (This Man: Death to Those Who See That Face) manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in April 2018, and ended it in 2019 with five volumes.
