Steel Angel Kurumi creator duo's series starts April 11 in Japanese/English/Chinese

DeNA's free Manga Box smartphone and tablet app added a listing for Kaishaku's Red Blood Red Legacy manga. The series will launch in Japanese, English, and Chinese on Friday, April 11.

Manga Box describes the story:

Itsuki and Hayato, two brothers who grew up in a village nestled deep in the mountains, set out to hunt down a wolf that has been attacking the livestock of the village. Itsuki is about to go in for the kill when a gigantic beast appears out of nowhere, snatching up the wolf in its jaws and sucking the life out of it. The beast that stared Itsuki down was a gargantuan, blood-sucking vampire deer… will the two brothers be able to return to the village alive?! Find out in this blood-filled action-packed story by extraordinary mangaka Kaishaku!

Kaishaku consists of artists Hitoshi Ota and Terumasa Shichinohe. Their manga include Steel Angel Kurumi, Magical Meow Meow Taruto, UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie, Key Princess Story: Eternal Alice Rondo, Kannazuki no Miko: Destiny of Shrine Maiden, and Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora (Shattered Angels), all of which inspired anime adaptations.

The duo's latest series, 2x2 (Two by Two), debuted on Home-sha's online manga publication Garaku no Mori in March.

Manga Box added four more manga in English, including Yōko Sanri's Milk on the Farm, in February.

Some of the manga featured on Manga Box are being published simultaneously in both English and Japanese, and the app is available on the iTunes store and on Google Play in 140 countries and regions around the world. DeNA also plans to add more languages to the app in the future.

Manga Box will allow users to read the 12 most recent issues of manga for free, and the users can also read the first 100 pages of the first volume of each series at all times.
