Anime News Network's coverage of Anime NYC 2017 is sponsored by Yen Press.
Kodansha Comics announced at its Anime NYC panel on Saturday that it has licensed Yasushi Baba's GOLOSSEUM manga.
The company also announced that it plans to release box sets for Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga. The four-volume sets will include special bonus items that will be announced at a later date. Two box sets covering the first "season" of Attack on Titan will launch in April 2018, followed by a "season 2" set in July 2018.
Kodansha Comics describes GOLOSSEUM:
Scientists discover a new material that renders people immune to all existing weapons. But these “peacemakers” instead transform world war into a martial-arts free-for-all! Rasputin plots against Russian President Putinov to control the global supply. Also opposing him are the unstoppable Axe Bogan under American President Billary Quintone and a slew of other muscular heroes!
The manga launched in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius supplementary magazine Nemesis in February 2015, and Kodansha published the fifth compiled volume on August 9. Kodansha Comics will publish the first volume in English next May.
