posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 21st issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine announced on Friday that Hiroshi Takashige (Spriggan, Until Death Do Us Part) will begin a new series titled RDB in the 22nd issue on November 4. Takashige is writing the story and Jun Rokumoto is providing the art. The tagline for the manga reads "What my father left behind for me was..."
The same issue also published a one-shot titled "Elements Network" by Takashige and Yu Kinutani (Steamboy, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex manga).
Takashige wrote the manga Spriggan with artist Ryoji Minagawa beginning in 1989. Viz Media released an edited version of the manga as Striker from 1998-1999, but only released three of the eleven volumes. The manga inspired an anime film in 1998, and ADV Films released the film in 2002 with an English dub.
Takashige ended his and artist DOUBLE-S's Until Death Do Us Part manga on November 20. Yen Press publishes the manga in English.
