Kodoani.com – The May issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Gene magazine revealed on Friday that the manga Sabiiro no Armor: Reimei Kairi Shimotsuki’s (Rusted Armors : Dawn) will end in the magazine’s next issue on May 13.
Shimotsuki (Brave10, Madness, Devil Kings Basara, Arthur Bright) launched the manga in Monthly Comic Gene in May 2021. Kadokawa published the manga’s first volume on December 27.
The Sabiiro no Armor (Rusted Armors) franchise is a multimedia project that began with a series of 2.5-D stage plays. The play first debuted in 2017. Artist hagi previously launched a manga version in January 2019 in Monthly Comic Gene. The second and final volume of the manga was published in January 2020.
Normally, “2.5-D” theatrical projects are based on existing anime or manga, but with the Rusted Armors project, the stage play begins first. Nelke Planning oversaw the project. The project focuses on the relationship between the gun-wielding Magoichi – the leader of the mercenary group Saika Ikki – and the Sengoku-era warlord Oda Nobunaga.
A television anime in the series premiered on January 9, and had 12 episodes when it aired.
