Hotaru Odagiri ended her The Betrayal Knows My Name manga in the June issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine on Monday. The magazine notes that Odagiri will launch a new work "around" this summer. The 13th and final compiled book volume of The Betrayal Knows My Name is slated for May 24.

Yen Press has released six omnibus volumes of the manga series in North America, and it describes the story:

Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches. As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named "Zess," whose face tugs on Yuki's memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death. But when Yuki's compassion leads him to disobey Zess's order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he's even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?

Odagiri launched the manga in Monthly Asuka in 2005, and Kadokawa published the manga's 12th compiled book volume last August.

The series received a 24-episode anime adaptation in 2010, and Crunchyroll streamed the series in various regions as it aired in Japan. Funimation released the on DVD on February 28.

Digital Manga Publishing released Odagiri's other series Only the Ring Finger Knows, Invisible Boy, and Time Lag in North America.

I've been waiting for this series to end, but once it does it gets a "rushed ending/axed" tag.

Is the ending conclusive? Or at least satisfying? (Without spoilers!)

I wouldn't call the ending conclusive in the sense you are probably thinking. It felt more like the ending of an arc, than an actual series. If that makes sense. As far as satisfying, I was happy to just get an ending as I had waited for so long. But did I end up screaming expletives at the mangaka and throwing the book when I was done? Yes.

Hope this helps!
