The concluding chapter of FLIPFLOPs’ manga “Darwin’s Game” has been revealed in the September edition of Akita Shoten’s Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine.
Scheduled to end with its 125th chapter, the manga released its 123rd installment in the recent issue, pointing to a probable October conclusion.
The narrative orbits around Kaname Sudō, a high schooler who finds himself entranced by the enigmatic app “Darwin’s Game,” plunging him into a lethal social gaming arena.
Initiating its run in December 2012 within Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine, the manga’s 28th volume was released on June 8 by Akita Shoten. Storyteller Shū Miyama (previously recognized as Ginko) crafts the manga’s plot, harmonized by Yuki Takahata’s artistic prowess. Embarking on its final arc in January 2020, the manga tantalizingly alluded to its zenith in January 2022.
The manga’s impact led to a television anime premiere in January 2020, inaugurated by an extended inaugural episode. The series was streamed on FunimationNow during its broadcast, while it subsequently entered Crunchyroll and HIDIVE’s libraries in February.
The dynamic FLIPFLOPs duo also delved into serialized literary extensions, commencing with a prequel novel in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in January 2020.
Orchestrated by Miyama and illustrated by Takahata, the novel delved into the past of characters Shuka and Rain, concluding its serialization in August 2020. Additionally, a spinoff manga spotlighting Rein Kashiwagi (Rain) is on FLIPFLOPs’ horizon.
