Mars, ES author launched historical manga in 2005

This year's 47th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine revealed on Thursday that Fuyumi Soryo's CESARE - Il Creatore che ha distrutto historical manga will end in its next chapter. The next chapter will appear in the magazine's 52nd issue on November 25.

The biographical work tells the story of Cesare Borgia. Motoaki Hara supervises the manga.

Soryo launched the manga in Morning in 2005, and Kodansha published the 12th volume in June 2019. The manga went on hiatus in October 2014 and resumed in November 2018. The manga inspired a stage musical that was supposed to premiere in April 2020, but was canceled due to the pandemic. A concert was instead held in July 2020.

Soryo published her Mars manga in Bessatsu Friend from 1996-2000, and Tokyopop published all 15 volumes of the series and the Mars Gaiden prequel in 2002-2004. The manga inspired a live-action Taiwanese series in 2004-2005. A 10-episode Japanese live-action series adaptation premiered in January 2016, and a film concluding the story premiered in June 2016.

Soryo also drew the manga ES (Eternal Sabbath), which Del Rey published in English. Comixology added the Mars manga with Kodansha Comics as publisher in June 2019.
