To Love-Ru writer Saki Hasemi wrote an afterword in the final manga volume of To Love-Ru Darkness reassuring fans that while Darkness has ended, it is not the final chapter of the series.
Manga artist Kentaro Yabuki did say that his next series will not be To Love-Ru related, but he said he like to draw a story involving Mikan Yuuki as a magical girl. He wrote, “It would be nice if there is a time and place where I can draw that.”
To Love-Ru Darkness is a sequel to the duo’s To Love-Ru series. The first series ran in Weekly Shounen Jump for 162 chapters between April 24, 2006 to August 31, 2009. Their sequel series was moved to Jump Square and ran for 100 chapters between November 2010 to April 2017.
To Love-Ru is one of Shueisha’s longest running harem series. It centers around Rito Yuuki, a teen who is having trouble working up the courage to confess his feeling to Haruna Sairenji. One day, a nude girl named Lala Satalin Deviluke appears and she claims to be from another planet. Instead of returning home to marry one the candidates her father has chosen, Lala decides to marry Rito so she can stay on Earth. Ecchi shenanigians ensue.
Xebec has adapted To Love-Ru into a four season TV series and three different OVA series, totaling 80 episodes.
We might have to wait for their next installment, but are you looking forward to the continuation of To Love-Ru?
