Manga creator Eiji Hashimoto has announced on his Twitter account that his and Shinya Umemura’s Chiruran: Shinsengumi Requiem manga will end with the manga’s 36th compiled book volume.

The story is described as:

The Shinsengumi were a special police force in Japan in the 19th century. Tasked originally with protecting the Shogunate, they eventually dedicated themselves to restoring order in Kyoto. Hijikata Toshizo is responsible for the death of the Shinsengumi, but he was once one of them. This is his story.

Umemura provides the story, and Hashimoto illustrates the manga. The duo launched Chiruran: Shinsengumi Requiem in the inaugural issue of Tokuma Shoten’s Monthly Comic Zenon magazine in 2010. Mangamo is releasing the manga in English digitally under the title The Shinsengumi.
