Basilisk manga artist Masaki Segawa has launched a new manga series based on another novel from Basilisk creator Futaroh Yamada on Thursday. Jū ~Ninpō Makai Tenshō~, the latest manga version of Yamada's Makai Tenshō novel, debuted in the September issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine.
In the story, 10 legendary swordsmen who should be dead are resurrected as demons through arcane powers. The Makai Tenshō novel already inspired several live-action films, as well as the video anime series that ADV Films and Media Blasters released under the English title Ninja Resurrection.
Del Rey published the Basilisk manga and another Segawa adaptation of a Yamada novel, The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls, in North America. The Basilisk manga inspired a television anime that Funimation released in America.
