This year’s third issue of Kodansha‘s Evening magazine announced on Tuesday that Fumiya Sato and Seimaru Amagi‘s Kindaichi 37-sai no Jikenbo (The Case Files of 37-year-old Kindaichi) manga will go on a break, and it does not list when it will return. The magazine also revealed that the Kindaichi Case Files (Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo) series will have an announcement in the next issue on January 25.
Amagi and Sato launched the Kindaichi 37-sai no Jikenbo (The Case Files of 37-year-old Kindaichi) manga in January 2018. Kodansha published the manga’s 11th compiled book volume on October 21.
Sato and Amagi launched a new manga in the Kindaichi Case Files series titled Yatagarasu-mura Satsujin Jiken (Yatagarasu Village Murder Case) on Tuesday. The series features Kindaichi as a high school student, as he was in the original series. The series is scheduled to run alongside the Kindaichi 37-sai no Jikenbo manga.
The original Kindaichi Case Files manga centers around a high school boy named Hajime Kindaichi who usually seems dull — but when there is a case, he demonstrates remarkable deductive skills inherited from his famous detective grandfather. The original manga inspired other spinoff manga, anime movies, OVAs, and a television anime series. The Kindaichi Shōnen no Jikenbo R manga also inspired two television anime series.
Amagi and Sato launched the Kindaichi Shōnen no Jikenbo R (The File of Young Kindaichi Returns) manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2012. The manga ended in October 2017.
Sato launched a new manga spinoff titled Kinnyaichi Shonen no Jikenbo in Evening on Tuesday. The four-panel comedy manga stars the titular character turned into a cat.
Sato previously drew the Akechi Keibu no Jikenbo spinoff manga for the franchise. The manga launched in Kodansha‘s Magazine Special in May 2014, and ended August 2018 with five volumes. The manga received a television anime special titled The File of Young Kindaichi Returns: The File of Inspector Akechi in December 2015.
