Crunchyroll to Publish Dragon Zakura Two Manga Digitally

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Original Dragon Zakura manga ran in 2003-2007, inspired live-action adaptations

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has added Norifusa Mita's Dragon Zakura Two manga as a digital manga. The company will add a new chapter of the manga every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. EST, and the release is available worldwide. Crunchyroll describes the manga:

Prior to the 2020 Education Reform, “our man” is coming back!

He's the legendary attorney Sakuragi Kenji, who will waltz back to the fallen Ryuzan High School where the students' academic aptitude is plummeting. In opposition to apathetic students and “The Empress” (Representative of the Chief Director) who wields overwhelming authority, he will start a revolution along with Mizuno, his former pupil.

Part 2 of Dragon Zakura, the legendary “manga that will help you pass the University of Tokyo entrance exams” — which helped change the landscape of Japan's university entrance exams — is here at last! Rest assured, entering the University of Tokyo is going to be a cinch!

Mita (Investor Z) launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine on Thursday.

The original Dragon Zakura manga follows an ex-biker gang member and lawyer who restarts his life as a teacher at a rough high school.

The 2003-2007 Kodansha Manga Award-winning Dragon Zakura manga was adapted into a Japanese television drama in 2005, with a sequel in 2010, and a Korean live-action television series in 2010. Mita's Angel Bank: Dragon Zakura Gaiden manga was also adapted into a Japanese drama in 2010. Nikkei reported in 2015 that China's Alibaba group was producing its own live-action drama.
