Ayakashi Triangle is based on a manga written by Kentaro Yabuki. The manga originally started in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jumpmagazine, but was moved to Shonen Jump+ in April of this year. The manga is simulpub licensed in North America; originally by Viz Media for the Shonen Jump website and for Shueisha’s MangaPLUS website. However, after the release of chapters 74-75 was missed on both platforms, Viz Media removed listings for the manga from its website. Seven Seas Entertainment has since picked up the manga and plans to release it in English in an uncensored version. MangaPLUS is still publishing new chapters.
Seven seas describes the plot of Ayakashi Traingle as:
Matsuri Kazamaki’s job as a ninja exorcist means that his livelihood depends on banishing the ayakashi spirits that threaten people. He protects his childhood friend, Suzu Kanade, from the shadows for years while she effortlessly attracts ayakashi. What will happen when Suzu meets a creature that looks like an ordinary cat, but is actually Shirogane, the king of ayakashi?
This gender-bender supernatural romance comic from hit artist Kentaro Yabuki is currently being digitally serialized in English through Viz’sShonen Jumpprogram and Shueisha’s Manga Plus service. Seven Seas will release Ayakashi Trianglein print and on digital platforms in raw single editions as part of Seven Seas’ Ghost Ship imprint.
