DeNA's free Manga Box smartphone and tablet app added 16 new series, including Genji the Death's Friend (Tōkyō Genji Monogatari) by Seimaru Amagi and Minami Ozaki.
Manga Box describes the story:
"People often die around me." A series of bizarre "deaths" stalks Genji. While a string of haunting memories and mystery surround him, all rooted in his childhood. A dear friend, a murder, and a curse. As more and more "deaths" unravel, the horrifying truth behind the origin grows ever more entangled. Seemingly the only keys to solve these mysteries, are the charismatic shinigami Touya, and Genji's own memories.
Seimaru Amagi is one of many pen names for Tadashi Agi, the creator of Getbackers, Kindaichi Case Files, The Knight in the Area, and The Drops of God manga. Agi is also serving as editor-in-chief of the app. Artist Minami Ozaki previously worked on the Zetsuai 1989, Bronze: Zetsuai since 1989, and Debichiru! Devil Children manga.
