posted on by Jennifer Sherman
This year's 29th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine revealed on Monday that Jun Watanabe's crime suspense manga Montage manga will receive a screen adaptation. The manga's new Hokkaido arc is also beginning in this issue.
Watanabe's original manga begins when a 10-year-old boy named Yamato and his friend Miku find a dying man in an alley. The man tells them that Yamato's father was involved in the great unsolved "300-Million-Yen Bank Robbery" in 1968. The children agree to keep the man's words a secret. Yamato's father is found dead soon after the incident. Years later, Yamato still has doubts about his father's murder, which was ruled as suicide. Yamato decides to search for the truth about his father's life and death.
The drama mystery manga debuted in the magazine in June 2010, and the 11th compiled book volume shipped in Japan on April 5.
Watanabe's other manga include RRR and Emblem Take 2.
