Yurikuma Arashi manga ends this month

The manga artist Akiko Morishima posted on her blog on April 3rd to announce that Yurikuma Arashi will reach its end this month. The series she illustrates adapting the anime of the same name, created and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara of Revolutionary Girl Utena and several Sailor Moon TV series, will publish its final chapter in the June issue of Gentosha Comics’ Monthly Comic Birz magazine, to be released on April 30th.

The manga’s “intellectual fantasy” tale follows the “transparent” and retiring high school girl Kureha. Each night, she has a “dream about a bear and an invisible storm”, in which her popular and enigmatic classmate Ginko Yurishiro appears in the form of the bear. This plotline differs greatly from the anime, which tells of humanity and bears at war and the great “Wall of Extinction” erected between the two.

Morishima launched her manga in Monthly Comic Birz in 2014, and it will have had a run of two years by the time it ends. The series’ most recent compiled volume was released by Gentosha Comics last July.
