posted on by Sarah Nelkin
This year's 46th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on October 16 that a film adaptation of Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Akeji Fujimura's Kami-sama no Iu Toori (Just as God Said) manga has been green-lit.
The story of the original horror-survival manga begins when strange and frightening things start happening at Shun Takahata's high school. After his teacher is killed, he and his classmates must play horrifying games in order to avoid death.
Kaneshiro wrote the story while Fujimura drew the artwork for the Kami-sama no Iu Toori manga's first arc in Kodansha's monthly Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2011 to 2012. The manga resumed with a second arc ("Ni") in this year's seventh issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine.
Update: The magazine adds that the film will be live-action, and it will open next fall.
