The official Twitter account for Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine announced on Tuesday that Daisuke Moriyama and Tarō Yokō will collaborate on a new manga series titled Kimi Shi ni Tamafu Koto Nakare (You Must Not Give Yourself to Death) on December 25 in the January 2015 issue.
Moriyama will provide the art, and Yokō will write the story for the "ultimately twisted, dark battle-action" manga, and a prologue "Chapter 0" will be published in the September issue of the magazine, which is scheduled to be released on October 25. Chinatsu Kurahana (Uta no Prince-Sama) is credited as designing the uniforms for the manga.
Daisuke Moriyama created the manga Chrono Crusade, and Gonzo adapted the series into a television anime in 2003. Funimation licensed and released the anime in North America. Moriyama's original manga is currently unlicensed in North America after the closure of ADV Manga.
Yokō is the director of the Drakengard (Drag-On Dragoon) series, and was also in charge of the game Nier. Drakengard 3 was released in Japan last December, and in May in North America and Europe.
