Kodansha is set to release their fifth Medarot manga reprint through their Re:ComicBonBon imprint. Collecting Horuma Rin’s Medarot 4 manga, Medarot: The Ikki Collection Volume 4 will be available in Japan on April 23rd, 2015 at an MSRP of 1,080yen and a page count of 272. Like previous Re:ComicBonBon releases, this new collection features an original cover drawn by Horuma Rin.
The Medarot 4 manga ran in the monthly Comic BonBon anthology magazine between April 2001 and November 2001. The story picks up where the third manga left off and sees Metabee gets kidnapped in the Medarot Company’s most nefarious secret. Kodansha originally released Medarot 4 in two volumes in Japan in September and December 2001, respectively. Chuang Yi released an English version specifically for the Singaporean market in the mid-2000s.
Kodansha’s Ikki Collection comes to a close with this release. It’s currently unknown if the publisher will continue onwards with more Medarot reprints.
