posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Kodansha's newly revealed Comic Days manga app and website revealed on February 19 that the Kaiji spinoff manga Chūkan Kanriroku Tonegawa (Middle Management Chronicle Tonegawa) is switching from Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine to the website, starting on March 5.
The manga focuses on the "agonizing daily life of Teiai Group executive Yukio Tonegawa, who gets into conflicts with Hyōdō and the black suits."
The manga launched in Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine in 2015 with collaboration from Kaiji creator Nobuyuki Fukumoto. Tensei Hagiwara is writing the series, and Tomohiro Hashimoto and Tomoki Miyoshi are providing the art. Kodansha published the sixth compiled book volume on November 6. The series ranked at #1 on the top 20 list of manga for male readers in the 2017 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook.
The manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation by Madhouse. The anime slated to premiere on NTV's "AnichU" programming block this year.
