Oshii to finish Kon's Seraphim as a novel, coming in 2012

12:00 PM on 01.20.2011 // Kristina Pino

When Satoshi Kon passed away last year, he left a few things unfinished, and many fans very, very sad (not just cause of his work, but because of how he approached life and death). The afterthought was, what would happen with the unfinished business? We now have confirmation that Mamoru Oshii will be publishing Kon's Opus (manga), and a complete novel of Seraphim 266,613,336 Wings.

Seraphim was originated by Oshii and Kon was working on the manga. A long while back, a lot of it was published in a weekly magazine, but never entirely finished. What Oshii is doing now is publishing a novel of the whole manga/story, including the end.

For those of you who don't know about Seraphim, it follows the trials and tribulations of a young girl, Sera, and three men who go search for answers. The answer to what? The world is afflicted by a deadly "angel disease", and they four step up to solve the mystery.  

It is a beautiful story and I think we are all fortunate to finally see it through when the novel comes out next Spring (as in 2012). How many of you Japanatorians are interested in seeing and end to these stories?
