The first compiled book volume of Tetsuya Tsutsui's noise manga revealed on Friday that Tsutsui's Prophecy (Yokokuhan) manga will get a stage play adaptation. The play will run from September 13 to 23 at OWL SPOT in Tokyo.

Vertical publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police has developed a Cyber Crime Division to take on the increasing threat of high-tech crime. One day, a man wearing a bag over his head releases a YouTube video notice of crime that will be committed. The crime occurs and the pattern is repeated and repeated, again and again. Now the TMPD must investigate this serious threat before, like many things on the internet, it is replicated and exploited.

Tsutsui launched the manga in Shueisha's Jump X magazine in 2011, and ended it in August 2013. Shueisha published three compiled book volumes for the manga. Vertical published all three volumes. Fumio Obata launched a spinoff manga titled Yokokuhan: The Copycat in Jump X in April 2014, and ended it in 2015. The manga also received three volumes.

The manga inspired a live-action film adaptation that opened in Japan in June 2015.

Tsutsui launched the noise manga in Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine last December.
