Yūki Konno launched manga adaptation of anime in November 2019
Shonen Jump+ editor Junichi Tamada revealed on their Twitter account on Saturday that Yūki Konno’s manga adaptation of Studio Trigger‘s SSSS.GRIDMAN anime will end in two chapters.
Konno launched the manga on Shueisha‘s Shonen Jump+ website in November 2019. Shueisha published the manga’s fifth compiled book volume on September 3, and will publish the sixth volume on January 4.
The 12-episode SSSS.Gridman anime premiered in October 2018. The anime was a collaboration between the anime studio Trigger and Tsuburaya Productions — the creator of the Ultraman franchise and the original 1993-1994 live-action tokusatsu (special-effects) series Denkō Chōjin Gridman. Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the anime as it aired, and Funimation also streamed an English dub for the anime.
The anime has since inspired a stage play adaptation, multiple manga spinoffs, and a novel spinoff. The stage play was slated for spring 2020 but was canceled due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
The SSSS.Dynazenon anime premiered on April 2. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The anime is listed as being part of the “Gridman Universe.”
Tsuburaya Productions and Trigger are planning a new project in the “Gridman Universe” that they will reveal this winter.
