This year's 32nd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine announced on Wednesday that Kaiji manga creator Nobuyuki Fukumoto is resuming his Tobaku Haōden Zero gambling manga in the next issue on July 13. It has been two and a half years since Tobaku Haōden Zero's last installment, which finished the manga's first story arc. The story follows a teenager named "Zero" Ukai who enters a trillion-yen (about US$12-billion) competition after saving his friends from a yakuza organization.
The manga launched in 2007, and Kodansha compiled and published eight book volumes. Fukumoto is best known for his long-running Kaiji gambling manga, which inspired two television series and two live-action films. The website Joost streamed the first anime series in 2009.
