With World’s End Harem: After World recently ending on May 7, World’s End Harem: Britannia Lumiere ending in August 2021, and World’s End Harem: Fantasia going on a hiatus, the end of the franchise might be here. The Twitter account for the series announced on May 13 that the manga would take a break. We’re unsure of its return since no comeback date was mentioned in the tweet.
The story of World’s End Harem began in April 2018 when it first debuted in Shueisha‘s Ultra Jump magazine, forming a fanbase due to its unique storyline and attractive characters. Then, it moved to the digital platform of Shōnen Jump+ magazine in March 2022. During its publication, it was available in both the Shōnen Jump+ digital magazine and the ‘Young Jump!’ app making it accessible to many fans.
Seven Seas Entertainment secured the license for the manga and its spin-off for a release in English, so international fans had the chance to experience the franchise. The manga was decided to be put on hold to give time for LINK (the author) and SAVAN (the illustrator) to recover. We know manga hiatuses are a common thing in the manga world, and hopefully, this break will bring the team back stronger.

World’s End Harem – The Franchise
Word’s End Harem: Fantasia isn’t a standalone manga. It is a spin-off of the World’s End Harem series. World’s End Harem, written by LINK and illustrated by Kotaro Shono, was initially released in 2016 and ended its first part in 2021 with 85 chapters. It continued its second part, “World’s End Harem: After World,” in 2021 and ended the part this year on May 7.
Along with Fantasia, another World’s End Harem manga was released titled “World’s End Harem: Britannia Lumiere,” written by LINK and illustrated by Kira Eto. It’s a spin-off and was released in 2020 and ended with 22 chapters in June 2021. World’s End Harem even got an anime adaptation.
A comedy spin-off of Fantasia premiered on May 19, 2020. It’s called World’s End Harem: Fantasia Academy and is illustrated by Okada Ando.
Fantasia Academy takes the characters of Fantasia and transports them into a contemporary school setting. Ark Nargala is once again joined by a group of irresistible women in a completely different world of fan service. The mysterious elf makes an appearance as well! She is Ark’s homeroom teacher, but can a teacher even dress so provocatively? Do Aurelia and Ark have a chance to have a peaceful romance here? You can find out by reading the manga!
With the end of many World’s End Harem manga, we can assume that Fantasia will return but will end soon after. Heavily lying on the fan service yet again, Fantasia has fans waiting for the return date to be announced. What do you think? Will the manga return?
