Koike also said the new manga will be adapted into a motion comic. SoraSeed, Inc. launched a Kickstarter campaign on February 25 to adapt Koike and Goseki Kojima's 1970-1976 manga Lone Wolf and Cub into a motion comic in English. The project has until March 25 to reach its goal of US$300,000. As of press time, the campaign has earned US$2,166.

Dark Horse Comics has published Koike's Lone Wolf and Cub, Samurai Executioner, and other titles, and Viz and Dark Horse Comics both published Crying Freeman.
