posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The January 2023 issue of Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge published the final chapter of author Reiji Kaitō and artist Momota Kanzaki's Shinigami Tantei Elria no Kai (The Death God Detective Elria's Solution) manga on December 16. The manga's third and final compiled book volume will ship on April 17.
The manga centers on a protagonist who reincarnates into the world of his favorite detective manga, becoming the assistant of the legendary detective Elria.
Kaito and Kanzaki launched the manga in Shonen Magazine Edge in December 2021. Kodansha published the manga's second compiled book volume on October 17.
Kaito wrote the Unbreakable Machine-Doll light novel series (seen right). 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 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.
Kaito and Hiyon Katsuragi launched the Mobile Suit Gundam Valpurgis manga in Kadokawa's Gundam Ace magazine in August 2017, and ended it in October 2019.
