The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga has come to an end! On May 18th, Shonen Jump published the final chapter of Koyoharu Gotouge’s popular series.
After running for over 5 years, Demon Slayer ends its run on a high note. Since it’s start in February 2016, the series saw a massive increase in sales. Demon Slayer even had shortages after volumes quickly sold out. The series also inspired a popular 26-episode anime that premiered in April 2019, so Demon Slayer has been a fan favorite for quite some time.
Spin-off manga series announced
With the end of the manga comes the announcement that a spin-off manga series, Kimetsu no Yaiba: Rengoku Gaiden. Created by Ryouji Hirano, the spin-off is coming but no official date has been released yet. Hirano wrote a four-panel spin-off manga before that appeared on the Shonen Jump+ app. This makes him an apt choice to do another spin-off of the series!
