Yuu Watase‘s Arata: The Legend (Arata Kangatari) manga revealed on Wednesday that the manga is entering its last arc.

The manga returned from a six-year hiatus in Weekly Shonen Sunday in May 2021. The manga went on hiatus in 2015. The manga transfered to Shogakukan‘s Sunday Webry (Sunday Web Every) website in May 2022.

Watase had said on Twitter in December 2020 that she was able to solidify the rest of the plot for the manga.

The manga debuted in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 2008. Viz Media publishes the manga English, and it describes the manga’s story:

In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, Arata has the unfortunate honor of being the successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan. This means he has to pretend to be a girl or face death if his true gender is discovered! On the day of his inauguration, an assassination plot forces him to flee – and he somehow winds up in modern-day Japan! Meanwhile, a boy named Arata Hinohara gets sucked into the first Arata’s world and finds himself dealing with people after his life!

The manga received a 12-episode anime adaptation in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
