The magazine issue does not reveal what Yagi is planning to do next. In the issue's back page, where authors are given a line of text to send messages to readers, Yagi simply wrote, "My editor dropped off some of those super-spicy Peyoung noodles that everyone is talking about these days. I tried them, and they did a number on me."
The June issue's preview page for the next issue does not list Claymore. Volume 22 of the manga is slated to be released on June 4 in Japan. In North America, Viz will publish the 20th manga volume in July, and Funimation released the Claymore anime adaptation produced by MADHOUSE.
