This year's 30th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is revealing on Monday that writer Muneyuki Kaneshiro and artist Akeji Fujimura, the duo behind the As the Gods Will manga, will launch a new manga titled Gnoshros in the magazine's next issue on July 3. The magazine describes the manga as centering on humans 30,0000 years in the past. A Young Magazine editor posted a color page from the manga's first chapter on Thursday.

Kaneshiro and Fujimura published their As the Gods Will manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from 2011 to 2012. They then launched a sequel series titled As the Gods Will: The Second Series (Kami-sama no Iu Toori Ni) in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2013. The manga ended in December. Crunchyroll simultaneously published chapters online along with the Japanese release, and Kodansha Comics is releasing the compiled volumes digitally. Kodansha released the manga's 21st compiled book volume on February 17.

Kami-sama no Iu Toori inspired a live-action film directed by Takashi Miike in 2014.

In addition, Tatsuya Shihara is also launching a new manga titled Basilisk - Ōka Ninpō-chō (Basilisk - The Ōka Ninja Scrolls) in the magazine's 34th issue on July 24. The manga is an adaptation of Masaki Yamada's spinoff novels of Futaroh Yamada and Masaki Segawa's Basilisk manga. Kodansha published both novels in November and December 2015, with illustrations by Segawa. Shihara previously drew the Robotics;Notes Revival Legacy manga in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine in 2012.

Update: The manga's title is spelled "gurashurosu" in katakana, but the same Young Magazine editor clarified on Twitter that the title is spelled "gnoshros" in Roman letters.
