K Anime Gets 2 More Manga, Including a High School Spinoff
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The December issue of Square-Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine announced on Monday that two new K manga spinoffs will launch in the next two issues in December and January.
K: The First by Rin Kimura (Maigoya) and GoRA member Hideyuki Furuhashi will launch in the January issue on December 18.
The story takes place in a world where seven people with unusual powers are crowned as “kings,” and revolves around the “bonds” and “fate” between the people involved.
Gakuen K (Academy K) by Jiro Suzuki (Higurashi When They Cry: Curse Killing Arc; I, Otaku - Struggle in Akihabara; Magical Musō Tenshi Tsukisase!! Ryofuko-chan) will launch in the February issue on January 18. GoRA member Suzu Suzuki (Kyūketsuki no Oshigoto) wrote the story.
In this official spinoff manga, Shiro and Kuro are not the only ones who go to high school. Instead, the members of Homra (including their leader Suou) and the members of Scepter 7 attend school together. The students are sometimes lax, but at other times, they are hot-headed.
GoRA and GoHands' K television anime series premiered last October. Viz Media streamed the anime in North America as it aired in Japan, and the company is also releasing the series on home video and streaming the series dubbed on Neon Alley. The anime project is getting a film sequel next year.
The December issue of Monthly G Fantasy will also launch Higasa Akai's manga series Ōshitsu Kyōshi Haine.
