This year’s 28th issue of Kodansha‘s Weekly Shōnen Magazine teased on June 9 that the manga would have an “important announcement” in the magazine’s next issue on June 17.
At Granbell Kingdom, an abandoned amusement park, Shiki has lived his entire life among machines. But one day, Rebecca and her cat companion Happy appear at the park’s front gates. Little do these newcomers know that this is the first human contact Granbell has had in a hundred years!
As Shiki stumbles his way into making new friends, his former neighbors stir at an opportunity for a robo-rebellion… And when his old homeland becomes too dangerous, Shiki must join Rebecca and Happy on their spaceship and escape into the boundless cosmos. (Source: Kodansha Comics)
Mashima launched the adventure fantasy manga in Weekly Shounen Magazine in June 2018, nearly a year after concluding Fairy Tail. Kodansha published the ninth volume on April 17, with the tenth volume scheduled for a June 17 release.
Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English and simultaneously publishes it with the Japanese release on Crunchyroll Manga, ComiXology, and Kindle. The eighth volume was released digitally on Tuesday, and will ship in print on August 4. The manga is also published in multiple foreign languages, including Chinese, French, Korean, and Thai.
Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga series follows the adventures of the world’s most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. The manga launched in 2006 and ended in July 2017.
