Amazon is listing this year's 27th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine with a cover image that reveals that Boichi's Origin manga will receive a special chapter, titled Origin Gaiden, in the issue on Monday. The chapter will celebrate the manga winning the grand prize in the Manga division of the 22nd Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in March.
The original manga's story takes place in 2048, at a time when Japan is connected to Eurasia via a transcontinental railroad. Tokyo has become a hotbed of terrorism and crime, and mysterious beings attack people night after night. The manga follows Origin, a robot who hunts these beings.
