The March 2023 issue of Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine has announced that Shun Umezawa’s The Darwin Incident manga will go on hiatus due to Umezawa recovering from an illness. The magazine did not reveal when the manga will resume.
The manga is described as:
Created in a biological science lab, Charlie is a half human, half chimpanzee hybrid known as a “Humanzee.”
Raised by his adoptive human parents, Charlie is now 15 and starting high school. There he meets Lucy, a clever loner who becomes his first-ever friend.
But his “normal” life is shattered when the animal rights extremists who freed his mother from the lab 15 years ago reemerge as terrorists bent on kidnapping Charlie at all costs.
Umezawa launched The Darwin Incident manga in Afternoon magazine in 2020. Kodansha Comics has licensed the manga, and will be releasing the first volume in North America on September 5, 2023.
