It is not often that we see two of our favorite worlds collide, especially when they are so far apart. However, while Deadpool: Samurai manga was one of the best combinations of things that could have ever happened, all good things must come to an end.
When the Deadpool: Samurai manga was announced back in December 2020, fans were excited to see the collaboration that they had been craving. Ever since then, the manga series has delivered consistently with its 14 chapters to date.
Sanshiro Kasama has confirmed through his official Twitter account that chapter 15 will be the last one in Deadpool: Samurai manga.

While the format was different, it still managed to keep the nonchalance and the casual fourth wall breaks Deadpool has become known for. The recent chapter hinted towards an end for the story arc, but the fans weren’t expecting the manga to end so soon.
While this news is a little disheartening for the fans, they can look forward to similar collaborations like Marvel Meow. Both series are available on the Shonen Jump plus website.
The recent collaborations between old-school comics and the anime manga sphere have been very well received by both fans. Even in the animated format, things like Batman Ninja have delivered more than they were expected to.
It seems like the old familiar character with the Japanese way of storytelling seems to be the best way to go. Watch out for chapter 15 though, while the manga may be ending, it won’t go down without a bang.
About Deadpool: Samurai
The Deadpool: Samurai manga by Sanshiro Kasama and Hikaru Uesugi was first published in the Shonen Jump+ magazine in December 2020, and in February 2022 worldwide.
Deadpool: Samurai is based on Marvel’s famous anti-hero, the “Merc with the Mouth.” He idly makes his way into villains’ bases just to slaughter them mercilessly. Dark humor and 4th wall breaking are just his normal character traits.
