On August 22, 2022, Yen Press on Twitter revealed the English cover of the Touring After the Apocalypse manga by Sakae Saito. The series is also known as Shuumatsu Touring or World’s End Touring.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much on the series, but Saito has worked on manga alone and done the art for several series.
What is Touring After the Apocalypse?
According to the description on Yen Press, Touring After the Apocalypse centers on two girls exploring the ruins of Japan on a bike. Yen Press compares this series to Girl’s Last Tour by Tsukumizu and states that Touring After the Apocalypse is an upbeat tale despite the setting.
You can pre-order Touring After the Apocalypse for around $13.00 for a physical copy or pay $6.99 for a digital copy. The manga goes on sale on November 22, 2022, and according to anime-planet, there will be three volumes in the series.
Sakae Saito is known for Robotics; Notes: Dengeki Comic Anthology, Toji no Miko, also known as Katana Maidens, and the art for Heavy Object S, Heavy Object A.
Why are we obsessed with the end of the world?
Humans have been talking about the apocalypse for centuries. But in most cases, humans survive and try to rebuild.
Touring After the Apocalypse is the perfect example of human nature. It doesn’t matter that something terrible happened.
The world still exists. We’re still alive and can build again. But will it be an easy journey? Maybe, but we’ll never know if we don’t try.
I wish the description would give us the main characters’ names because this tour looks like it will be a fun journey. Are you ready to take it?
The joys and frustrations of the short manga series!
Touring After the Apocalypse only has 18 chapters, but will that be enough? Many of Saito’s other works are on the short side, but that might not be bad.
I pick my books on descriptions and my current mood as a reader. I rarely note the author’s name unless the book strikes a chord with me.
And one of the things that strike me is how well the story progresses. Did the main character achieve their goal?
Are most of the plot points explained and dealt with? Is there enough to promote a sequel? A short manga can achieve all this and more.
A longer manga can take too long to resolve specific issues and risk dropping readers. The most frustrating thing to me is getting into a story only for it to end at a rushed pace.
You don’t need a hundred chapters, but the ending must make sense and feel complete.
