GTO's Fujisawa Co-Creates Space Sheriff Gavan Manga

Gavan film/Precure writer Yūji Kobayashi, Silent Blood manga's Masaki Ōta collaborate

A manga adaptation of the live-action tokusatsu (special-effects) franchise Space Sheriff Gavan will debut online on October 17, three days before the premiere of Space Sheriff Gavan the Movie.

The film's screenwriter Yūji Kobayashi (Aoi Bungaku Series, Suite Precure, Smile Precure!) is also writing the manga, and GTO creator Tohru Fujisawa is collaborating on the plotting and direction. Masaki Ōta (Silent Blood) is drawing the actual manga.

The film marks the 30th anniversary of Toei's original Space Sheriff Gavan television series, which followed a combat-suited hero defending Earth against extraterrestrial threats. Kenji Ohba, who played the hero Retsu Ichijōji in the original series, returns to pass the baton to actor Yuma Ishigaki as the next-generation Gavan hero. In addition, two more Space Sheriffs, Sharivan and Shaider, also appear in updated incarnations.
