Crows' Takahashi Launches New Jank Runk Family Manga in September
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 15th issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine revealed on Tuesday that Hiroshi Takahashi will launch a new manga series titled Jank Runk Family in the magazine's 19th issue, which Akita Shoten will publish on September 13. The 16th issue of the magazine will have a preview of the manga.
The manga will be a crossover with the OREN'S manga, which artist Yanse Kazu and Takahashi launched last September in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Young Champion magazine. The OREN'S manga is set in the aftermath of a great disaster, and depicts the struggle for survival of men.
Takahashi's Crows manga ran for 26 volumes, and Digital Manga Publishing partially published its sequel manga Worst in English. Crows also inspired a two-episode anime OVA adaptation, the 1994 Koukou Butouden Crows. The manga inspired three live-action films, with Takashi Miike directing the first two films, Crows Zero and Crows Zero II. Crows Explode, the third film, opened in Japan in April 2014.
Takahashi debuted the Crows Gaiden: Katagiri Ken Monogatari manga mini-series in Akita Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Champion magazine in June 2014. Akita Shoten published the manga's one compiled book volume in November 2014.
Update on September 26: The manga's official romanized title is Jank Runk Family
