The LINE Manga app announced on Wednesday that the third part of Masaya Hokazono and Seima Taniguchi's Pumpkin Night manga will start on
The manga's story begins when a girl named Akemi Nakatani is followed by someone named "Pumpkin Night" on social media, and receives a threatening private message right before being murdered while talking to a friend on the phone.
A boy named Kazuya Makino, is Pumpkin Night's next target. It turns out that Pumpkin Night's true identity is Naoko Kirino, a girl bullied from childhood who has escaped from a mental institution to take revenge on her bullies.
Hokazono and Taniguchi launched the manga in the LINE Manga app in 2016. LINE Digital Frontier published the manga's seventh compiled book volume (image right) in October 2022. Hokazono and Nao Kurebayashi launched the Naoko manga prequel in LINE Manga in June 2020.
Hokazono serialized the Inugami manga in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine from 1996 to 2002 with 14 volumes. Hokazono later drew a new version of the manga with modifications titled Inugami Kai for 10 volumes. Manga Planet is publishing Hokazono's Inugami Kai and Doctor Mordrid manga in English.
Pumpkin Night manga is available to read on LINE Manga. Unfortunately, the service is only accessible in Japan and does not provide an official English translation for the same.
Manga fans who do not understand Japanese may have to rely on fan translation for the series.
