This year's 33rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that Masakazu Katsura is drawing a special one-shot manga based on the Tiger & Bunny superhero anime. The anime's series script editor Masafumi Nishida wrote the original manga episode for Young Jump's combined 36/37th issue, which will ship on August 4. Katsura is the original character designer of Tiger & Bunny, and he is also the creator of such manga as DNA², I''s, Video Girl Ai, and Zetman.
Sunrise's Tiger & Bunny anime centers around heroes for hire — super powered beings known as NEXT who wear sponsor logos while fighting crime on live television. Keiichi Satou (Karas director, The Big O character/mechanical designer) is helming the project, and Yoshihiro Ike (Blood: The Last Vampire, Karas, Dead Leaves) is composing the music.
Viz Media is streaming the anime outside Japan as it airs.
