News Code:Breaker Manga Gets Anime Green-Lit
posted on 2011-09-24 00:20 EDT
This year's 44th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that an anime adaptation of the Code:Breaker manga by Akimine Kamijyō (Samurai Deeper Kyo) has been green-lit. Del Rey Manga published two volumes of the manga in North America last year (before Kodansha USA took over Del Rey's manga titles) and described the plot as follows:
Rei seems like an affable transfer student to everyone around him, but quirky high school beauty Sakura sees his true face as a terrifying vigilante - a "nonexistent" Code:Breaker who cannot be touched by the law. And since Sakura has just witnessed the effects of his deadly blue flame, she's slated to be the next to burn!
The manga launched in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2008, and Kodansha will publish the 16th compiled book volume of the manga in Japan next month.
Update: More background information added.
