This year's 33rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine has announced on Wednesday that Cromartie High School (Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou) creator Eiji Nonaka will launch a new manga called Double J (Daburu Jei) in the next issue on July 22. Nonaka created the manga's story while Maru Asakura (090 - Eko to Issho) is drawing the actual manga. The magazine's advertisement indicates that the two creators' surprising collaboration will depict the "surreal, cute, and strange life" of four girls, who Nonaka drew in animal character costumes (kigurumi).
A.D. Vision's ADV Manga division published 12 of the 17 volumes in the Cromartie High School gag comedy manga in North America from 2005 to 2007. Its sibling ADV Films division released Production I.G's entire television anime series version in 2005, while Media Blasters released Yuudai Yamaguchi's live-action film adaptation in theaters and on DVD in 2006.
