Yun Kouga's Assassin Girl Manga Riddle Story of Devil Gets Anime
The July issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Newtype magazine is announcing on Monday that an anime adaptation of the Riddle Story of Devil (Akuma no Riddle) manga has been green-lit for next year. Story creator Yun Kouga and artist Sunao Minakata launched the manga in Newtype last September, and Kadokawa will publish the first compiled book volume next month.
The story is set at Myōjō Academy, a private girls' boarding school. All the students in the 10th year's Kurogumi class are assassins with one target, Haru Ichinose. Tokaku Azuma is a recent transfer student who is also targeting Ichinose, but she gradually develops feelings for Ichinose.
Kouga's earlier Loveless, Earthian, Genji, and Gestalt manga also inspired anime. She designed the characters in the television anime Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Un-Go, as well as those for the video anime projects Carol and High School Aurabuster. Riddle Story of Devil already inspired a social game for Japanese phones.
