posted on by Egan Loo
Media service Crunchyroll announced during its Otakon panel on Saturday that it will release more of Akira Saso's Shindō manga online, as well as new manga titles: Keita Sugawara and Shinji Inamitsu's Murder Incarnation, Azusa Itakura's Girl May Kill, Ken Wakai's Joshi Kausei, and Masayuki Takano's Cronos Haze.
Crunchyroll describes Shindo's story:
Boy meets Girl!! Kazuo, a ronin aiming to get into a distinguished college of music, meets a girl who loves baseball. Her name is Uta Naruse, the piano prodigy who can play Debussy as if it were nothing! Manga may be a soundless way of storytelling, but your heart will be filled with beautiful music!!
The manga was previously adapted into a live-action film. The rest of the catalog will be available on August 12 in all territories except Japan.
Crunchyroll will offer all of the completed Murder Incarnation manga on beginning on August 12 in all territories excluding Japan. Crunchyroll describes the story:
A tragic loss. The endless despair that accompanies losing a loved one. A mysterious girl who appears at just the right moment. An unbelievable offer. "I can bring your lost loved one back to life, if you complete a simple task for me. Please kill three people, any three people, in the next 24 hours. Do that, and without fail I will revive them just as they were."
Could YOU take three lives to bring someone you love back from the dead? What value do you place on human life? Murder Incarnation is a mystery that asks that very question.
The company will add the back catalog of Girl May Kill on August 12 with following chapters to be simul-published. The next simul-published chapter will be added to the service on August 24, with a new chapter added on the 24th of each month. It will be available in all territories excluding Japan. Crunchyroll describes the story:
A port town where the Mafia actively operates behind the scenes. Gohongi is a young man who has come back to this to place where he was born after many years and finds a job working at a video rental store, which also becomes his new home. It is here that he begins to live with a young girl named Mei and a homosexual by the name of Katsura. But both of them are members of the Mafia group, Lovely Town. And fifteen-year-old-Mei is a ruthless hitman. There have been rumors that the struggles between Mafia factions are becoming more intense. Still not able to completely grasp the situation, Gohongi winds up getting dragged into a world of trouble...
Joshi Kausei will have new chapters added on the 2nd and 4th of each month. The back catalog will be added on August 12 in all territories excluding Japan. Crunchyroll describes the story:
Who needs dialog when you're this cute? The beautiful (but unlucky) Momoko, the cool, collected Shibumi, and the refreshingly innocent Mayumi star in a "silent manga." No speeches, no dialog! Just pictures, sound effects, and three high school girls living their daily lives.
Masayuki Takano's Cronos Haze will be added in the future with chapters simul-published twice a month in all territories excluding Japan. Crunchyroll describes the story:
Amagiri Academy—a school that takes up the entirety of a single island. Touya only has a vague recollection of his father and enrolls in this school that he attended in order to learn what became of him. But soon after school begins, Touya is dragged into one mysterious and troublesome affair after another…!
Crunchyroll also reported that the previously announced GTO: Paradise Lost manga will debut on Saturday worldwide excluding Algeria, Lebanon, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Morocco, Switzerland and Japan.
