Let me guess, fantasy manga fan? Here’s one for you. If you have been looking for a fantasy manga that has been completed, Renji Fukuhara’s The Invisible Shovel manga has just released its final chapter. The plot is… pretty interesting.
On Thursday, the final chapter of Renji Fukuhara’s The Invincible Shovel (Scoop Mus) manga was published in Kadokawa’s Dra Dra Flat manga catalog on the Nico Nico Seiga website.
The manga is being published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment, which describes the plot as follows:
Alan is no ordinary miner. He’s the greatest miner in the world, thanks to a shovel that can shoot lasers and level mountains! After scooping up a princess in distress, Alan finds himself drawn into a quest to save her kingdom. Dig out your common sense and delve into a land of shovels and sorcery, where a spade is not a spade, but an invincible shovel like no other!
The manga is based on the light novel series of the same name by Yasohachi Tsuchise and Yuki Hagure. In September 2019, Fukuhara debuted the manga on Nico Nico Seiga. In September 2022, Kadokawa released the manga’s sixth compiled book volume.
Yasohachi premiered the original story on Shousetsuka ni Narou! In February 2018, the website was launched. The first print volume, with illustrations by Hagure, was released in January 2019, and the fourth volume will be available in March 2020. Seven Seas Entertainment is also publishing the author’s light novels in English, with the fourth volume due out in July 2021.
Much like every other fantasy anime out there, Renji Fukuhara definitely has his way of writing. Imagine having a magic shovel that’s suddenly able to save a princess’ magic kingdom. It would really be a fun manga to add to your already long to-be-read list!
