The second 2019 issue of Kodansha‘s Monthly Morning two magazine published the final chapter of Ryo Hanada‘s Devils’ Line manga on Sunday and announced details on a new five-part side story manga starting in the next issue. The first part will focus on Shōta Akimura.
The 13th compiled volume, which will include the final chapter, will ship on February 22. The side story chapters will be compiled into the 14th volume, shipping on June 21.
To commemorate the manga’s finale, the magazine will run a series of conversations with Hanada and other artists. The next issue will feature an interview with Hanada and Kasane creator Daruma Matsuura.
Vertical Comics is publishing the manga in print in English, and Kodansha Advanced Media is releasing the manga digitally in North America. Vertical describes the series’ story:
Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood…
Hanada launched the dark fantasy manga in Kodansha‘s Monthly Morning two magazine in 2013.
The anime adaptation of the manga premiered in Japan on April 7, and HIDIVE streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired. The company also streamed the English dub as the first show in its “dubcast” initiative that streams dubs for anime shortly after they premiere in Japan. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for streaming and home video. Hulu is also streaming the anime with English subtitles and the English dub.
The manga will receive an original anime DVD (OAD) that will bundle with the manga’s 12th volume, which ships on Thursday. The OAD‘s story will follow the anime’s 12th and final episode.
