The 25th compiled book volume of FLIPFLOPs‘ Darwin’s Game manga revealed on Friday that the manga is in its climax. The volume also revealed that FLIPFLOPs will launch a spinoff manga centering on Rein Kashiwagi, also known as Rain.
FLIPFLOPs launched the manga in Akita Shoten‘s Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine in December 2012. Shū Miyama (formerly known under the pen name Ginko) provides the story for the manga, while Yuki Takahata provides the art. The manga entered its final arc in January 2020. The “last event” of the manga began in its 22nd compiled book volume in December 2020.
