The December issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge magazine announced last Thursday that author Reiji Kaitō and artist Momota Kanzaki's Shinigami Tantei Elria no Kai (The Death God Detective Elria's Solution) manga will end in the magazine's January 2023 issue on December 16.
The manga centers on a protagonist who reincarnates into the world of his favorite detective manga, becoming the assistant of the legendary detective Elria.
The manga launched in Shonen Magazine Edge in December 2021. Kodansha published the manga's first compiled book volume in Japan on April 15, and the second volume on October 17.
Kaitō wrote the Unbreakable Machine-Doll light novel series. Kaito launched the light novel series with illustrations by LLO (Mushi-Uta, Oreshura) in 2009, and ended it with a two-part 16th volume in July 2017. Hakaru Takagi launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2010, and the ninth and final complied volume shipped in March 2016.
The novels inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in October 2013. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with an English dub in 2015.
