After the news of the untimely end of Takashi Morita’s Aventurier – Shinsetsu Arsène Lupin manga a lot of people felt this as an unjust consequence to the past crisis in the manga and anime industry. One of these people, fortunately, was also the mangaka himself. So… The gentleman thief is returning in 2013!
The new chapter will come in the April issue (coming out on March 1, 2013) of Monthly Hero’s magazine. The last home of the adaptation of Maurice Leblanc’s original stories about the mastermind of mysteries and crime Lupin was Kodansha’s Evening magazine where the project has been published since its birth. Unfortunately, in the Christmas issue of the media, the last chapter to be on the pages of Kodansha’s product was present.
Thankfully, Morita has found another place for the story.
It was plain that the author was not pleased with the situation and it is more than just good news that the issues have been resolved. One manga has been saved!
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
