In the 43rd issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine this year, it was announced that Kentaro Yabuki’s manga, “Ayakashi Triangle,” is coming to a close.
The final chapter will be published on the Shonen Jump+ service this Monday, coinciding with the broadcast of the 12th and concluding episode of the manga’s anime adaptation later that evening. Fans can also anticipate the 16th volume of the manga, set to be released on December 4.
Both Viz Media and Shueisha have been digitally publishing the manga in English, while Seven Seas has been handling the distribution of both digital and physical compiled book volumes in English. The story revolves around Kazamaki Matsuri, a teenager who belongs to an elite group of ninja exorcists tasked with combating malevolent ayakashi spirits that threaten Japan, especially those targeting his childhood friend and spirit medium, Kanade Suzu.
As their relationship evolves from friendship to romance, a powerful cat ayakashi intervenes by casting a forbidden spell that transforms Matsuri into a woman. With no apparent means of reversing the spell, Matsuri must continue battling ayakashi and navigating school life in this newfound feminine form until a solution can be found.
Kentaro Yabuki, known for works like “To Love-Ru -Trouble-,” “Black Cat,” and “Mayoi Neko Overrun!,” initiated “Ayakashi Triangle” in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine back in June 2020. The manga later made its transition to Shonen Jump+ in April 2022.
The anime adaptation made its debut on January 9 in Japan but encountered production delays for episodes five and beyond in January due to the impact of COVID-19. The series eventually resumed its originally scheduled broadcast, consisting of 12 episodes, on July 10.
