Manga (Main Source Material)

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, anime is the TV adaptation of the manga series written and illustrated by Kenjiro Hata. The manga series, which started airing on Weekly Shōnen Sunday on February 14, 2018, is still ongoing. As of December 2021, the manga series, consisting of 18 volumes, has a new volume every two months on average. In addition, Viz Media publishes the manga series in English.

The active release of the manga is good news for the anime series. The anime’s first season only covered 4 volumes. The source material has already accumulated for at least two more seasons. There is no problem based on source material to create a new season of the series. Meanwhile, the story expands considerably after the 5th volume in the manga series. The renewed second season will be much more exciting than the first.
