posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account of Kadokawa's Young Ace Up manga website revealed on February 28 that manga creator Ganjii will launch a manga adaptation of the Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple anime film in the website on Friday.
Bandai Entertainment previously published Ganjii's Code Geass: Tales of an Alternate Shogunate manga in 2011. It is a parody spinoff of the Code Geass franchise. Ganjii launched the manga in Kadokawa's Kerokero Ace magazine in 2008.
The Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple film opened in Japan last Saturday.
The film's story involves a mystery case of power users around the world suddenly committing suicide one after another, in all cases after a strange fog appears at the scene. At a request from Ango Sakaguchi, the Armed Detective Agency head out to investigate Tatsuhiko Shibusawa, a power user who calls himself "collector," and a man suspected of being tied to the incident.
Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's original Bungō Stray Dogs manga centers around a league of literary figures with supernatural powers. For example, in real life, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa wrote acclaimed stories that inspired Akira Kurosawa's Rashōmon film and the Aoi Bungaku Series anime's Jigoku Hen (Hell Screen) arc. In Bungō Stray Dogs, he has the power to transform and manipulate his cloak into a monster-like entity. Together, some of these writers solve mysteries as part of the "Armed Detective Agency," while others appear as antagonists.
Yen Press published the fifth volume of the manga in English in December.
