Nitro+'s Gen Urobuchi Writes Black Lagoon Novel

posted on by Egan Loo

The June issue (released on May 19) of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine has announced that Gen Urobuchi, the writer of many of Nitro+ studio's releases, will pen the novel adaptation of Rei Hiroe's Black Lagoon action manga. Hiroe will illustrate the novel, which the Gagaga Bunko imprint will ship on the same day (July 18) that the eighth compiled manga volume will ship in Japan. As one of Nitro+ studio's key writers, Urobuchi developed the plots for the Phantom -Phantom of Inferno- game and the Phantom - The Animation spinoff, wrote the Fate/Zero novels, and is supervising the scripts for the Blassreiter anime.

Viz Media will begin releasing the original manga in North America this August. Geneon Entertainment released part of the Black Lagoon anime on DVD before ceasing its DVD sales last year.
