Square Enix has some sad fans for fans of Shu’s The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novel series. They’ve announced that Kayaharuka’s manga adaptation of the series has been cancelled. This is all due to the mangaka undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer, so the reason for its cancellation is quite serious indeed.
The mangaka has said that he has known that he had cancer since September 2019. However, he did express that he is regretting that the manga had to end this way. Fortunately, the mangaka did admit that he has treasured his time working on the manga.
Square Enix publishes the manga in English, and here’s how they describe its story:
Despite their appetite for destruction, even demon kings tire of all the blood and chaos sometimes! When Anoth reincarnates in the hopes of a more peaceful life, he ends up going to school with his descendants in his old castle 2,000 years later. But with magic on its last legs in this era, no one is able to assess Anoth’s true power!
Kayaharuka launched the manga adaptation back in July 2018. Currently, it already has three tankoubon volumes released. We wish him a speedy recovery.
