This year's 24th issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine has published a special one-shot manga based on Kill, the latest live-action film from director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor, Avalon), on Friday. Newcomer Kenji Hiraya drew the Samurai Sword manga, which is a standalone story loosely inspired by Oshii's theatrical collection of short stories about climactic final battles. After several festival showings earlier this year, the film will open in Japan on December 6.
