Shotaro Ikenami Kyokaku Manga Ends in Next Chapter



OtakuFeed found out that the official Twitter account of Bungeishunju’s Comic Ran Twins magazine revealed that Shōtarō Ikenami and Yūsuke Ochiai’s Kyōkaku (The Vigilante) manga would be concluding in its next chapter this magazine’s April issue on March 13.

Ikenami and Ochiai released the manga in Comic Ran Twins in October 2020. LEED Publishing issued the manga’s fifth assembled book volume on Monday.
The manga is established on Ikenami’s serialized novel of the same name. It centers on the historical figure Banzuiin Chōbei, an outlaw in Japan’s Edo period that fought against injustice alongside his gang of ronin.

Ikenami is the author of the Onihei Crime Reports in Edo (Onihei Hankachō) novel series. Ikenami made the story in Bungeishunju’s Ōru Yomimono novel magazine from 1967 to 1989, and Bungeishunju issued 19 volumes of the main story. Later paperback reprints divided the story into 24 volumes. The serialized novels encouraged the first live-action television adaption in 1969, as well as three successive series and a 1995 live-action film. The novels also encouraged an anime adaptation that aired in January 2017 and aired it on Amazon Prime Video’s now-defunct Anime Strike channel.

The Onihei novels encouraged an ongoing manga adaptation by Sentarō Kubota and Takao Saito, which was released in Bungeishunju’s Comic Ran magazine in 1993. JManga partially issued the manga in North America.
