Gang King Manga to Have 'Important Announcement' on September 9

posted on by Anita Tai

This year's September issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine announced last week that Daiju Yanauchi's Gang King manga will have an "important announcement" in the next issue on September 9.

The manga's story follows first-year high school student Katsuya "Jimmy" Ōnishi at Barajūji Academy. As a child, he was saved by a tattoo artist known as the "victorious needle." Entranced by this person, Katsuya is inspired to follow the same path and aims to be the best tattoo artist in the world.

Yanauchi launched the manga in Shonengahosha's Young King in 2003. The series moved to Kodansha's Magazine Special magazine in 2016 after a two-year hiatus, and in March 2017 it moved again to Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine. The series is ongoing. Kodansha published the 29th compiled volume on March 9. The manga has over 10 million copies in print.
