Crows manga creator currently plotting 2nd part

Hiroshi Takahashi ended the "first part" of his Jank Runk Family manga in this year's sixth issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine on Tuesday. The announcement states that Takahashi is currently plotting the manga's second part, and asks readers to "wait a while."

The manga is a crossover with the OREN'S manga, which artist Yanse Kazu and Takahashi launched in September 2015 in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Young Champion magazine. The OREN'S manga is set in the aftermath of a great disaster, and depicts the struggle for survival of men.

Takahashi launched the Jank Runk Family manga in Young Champion in September 2016. Akita Shoten published the manga's third compiled book volume last November.

Takahashi's Crows manga ran for 26 volumes, and Digital Manga Publishing partially published its sequel manga Worst in English. Crows also inspired a two-episode anime OVA adaptation, the 1994 Kōkō Butō Den Crows. The manga inspired three live-action films, with Takashi Miike directing the first two films, Crows Zero and Crows Zero II. Crows Explode, the third film, opened in Japan in April 2014.

Takahashi debuted the Crows Gaiden: Katagiri Ken Monogatari manga mini-series in Akita Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Champion magazine in June 2014. Akita Shoten published the manga's one compiled book volume in November 2014.
