posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The February 2018 issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine announced on Friday that manga artist Suzuka Oda will launch a new manga titled Danzai no Dragnet (Conviction's Dragnet) in the March issue, which will ship on January 24. Novelist Michiru Yoshino is credited with the original work.
The manga will adorn the March issue's cover. The first chapter will have 60 pages including a color page.
The "end of the century mystery" manga takes place in a Japan where an unknown infectious disease has killed more than half of Japan's population. The interests of two men will align to work together. Ruslan is a coroner with good looks, and Sanajima is a police officer in the Hyogo police department who is investigating the mysteries of bizarre murders.
Oda launched the Psychic Detective Yakumo manga in Monthly Asuka in 2009, and ended the 14-volume series in June 2016. The manga adapted Manabu Kaminaga's novel series of the same name. The story was adapted into a 2006 live-action television series, as well as several stage plays and two manga series.
