Hachette, the distributor for the North American publisher Yen Press, is listing the first volume of Yoshiki Tonogai's Judge manga for release on August 20, 2013.
In the story, nine young strangers wake up and find themselves wearing animal masks in a shuttered old courtroom. They are accused of sins, and must judge and sacrifice each other one by one, until four are left alive. They must all play the game, or they will all die.
Tonogai launched this manga in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine in 2010 after finishing Doubt, another psychological horror manga that Yen Press will begin publishing next April. Judge ended in Japan this year, and Square Enix is publishing the sixth compiled book volume this year.
