posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Nihonbungeisha's Shūkan Manga Goraku magazine's website launched a countdown page for the third part of Akira Miyashita's Sakigake!! Otoko Juku manga series. The Goku!! Otoko Juku series will launch on April 4. Miyashita planned to launch on January 18 but the manga was delayed.
Miyashita's original action story about a private school for juvenile delinquents ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1985 to 1991. The series inspired a television anime adaptation and film in 1988. The second manga series Akatsuki!! Otoko Juku - Seinen yo, Taishi o Idake launched in Super Jump in 2001 before ending in 2010.
Chiwa Omatsu will launch a spinoff titled Otoko Juku Gaiden Date Omito in the June issue Nihonbungeisha's Bessatsu Manga Goraku magazine next month. The original manga also inspired games for Famicom (NES), Game Boy, PlayStation, and PlayStation 2. A new PlayStation 3 game titled Sakigake!! Otoko Juku Nihon yo, Kore ga Otoko Dearu! (Japan, These Are Men!) shipped on February 27.
