Darwin's Game Manga Gets TV Anime
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The 16th compiled book volume of FLIPFLOPs' Darwin's Game manga revealed on Thursday that the series is getting a television anime adaptation. An official website for the anime opened and revealed a teaser visual and promotional video.
The November issue of Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine revealed in October that the series will have a "super important announcement" in the magazine's next issue on November 12.
The manga centers on Kaname Sudō, a high school boy who is drawn to a mysterious game app titled "Darwin's Game." He becomes involved in a social game where the stakes are life or death.
FLIPFLOPs launched the manga in Bessatsu Shōnen Champion in December 2012, and Akita Shoten published the manga's 15th compiled book volume on August 8. The series has more than 2 million copies in print.
FLIPFLOPs launched the Nekogami Yaoyorozu comedy manga in Akita Shoten's Champion RED Ichigo magazine in 2007 and ended it in 2012. Akita Shoten published six volumes for the series. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime in 2011, which Crunchyroll streamed with the title Cat God. NIS America released the anime on home video in 2013 under the title The Everyday Tales of a Cat God.
