Osora's Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyōchū] Manga Gets Anime

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Story of game streamer in life-or-death struggle debuted in 2014

The official Twitter account for Osora's Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyōchū] (Naka no Hito Genome [Now Streaming]) manga announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of the manga is in the works. The wraparound jacket band on the manga's seventh compiled book volume, which will ship on Saturday, will also feature the announcement.

The story begins when Akatsuki Iride and seven other charismatic game streamers wake up in the world of a mysterious free-to-play game called Naka no Hito Genome. Now they are competing in real-life games with life-or-death stakes, but clearing several game tasks could earn them 100 million lives.

Osora launched the series in the free web manga magazine Gene pixiv in 2014. Kadokawa published the sixth compiled book volume in November. The series has a total of more than 350,000 copies in print.
