Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine will publish Sekai no Owari Monogatari (Sekai no Owari Story), a new two-chapter manga based on the four-member Japanese rock band Sekai no Owari.
Weekly Shonen Magazine will published the manga in 2015's combined second/third issue on December 10 and in the combined fourth/fifth issue on December 24. Atsunori Horiuchi (Baby World End) illustrates the manga, and both chapters will have color pages. The combined second/third issue will include photos and an interview of the band, and the magazine will offer exclusive goods via a mail-in offer.
Sekai no Owari was formed in 2007 in Tokyo. The four members are Satoshi Fukase, Saori Fujisaki, Shinichi "Nakajin" Nakajima, and DJ Love. The J-Rock band did a collaborating song, called "Tokyo," with Owl City in October.
In September, the band performed the theme song for the live-action film of Akiko Higashimura's Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime) manga. The band also performed the theme song to the 2013 movie Eiga Crayon Shin-chan: Bakauma—! B-Kyū Gourmet Survival!!, and band vocalist Fukase sang the opening theme song for Devil Survivor 2 The Animation.
