The July issue of Ichijinsha‘s Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine has announced on Thursday that Kazuya Minekura will end her Saiyuki Reload manga in the next issue on June 28. However, in the same magazine, Minekura will launch a new story that will be the “final chapter” in the Saiyuki series. Minekura confirmed Saiyuki Reload‘s end and the final Saiyuki chapter’s plans in a Thursday entry to her official blog.
