Prequel manga launched in 2013

The January issue of Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine announced on Tuesday that Takahiro and Kei Toru's Akame ga KILL! ZERO prequel manga will end in the next issue on January 25.

Takahiro and Toru launched the spinoff manga in Monthly Big Gangan magazine in October 2013. Takahiro is providing the story while Toru illustrates the manga. The ninth compiled volume, which shipped in August, announced that the 10th volume will be the last.

The "dark action" manga takes place a few years before the events in Takahiro's original Akame ga KILL! manga series. The prequel centers on the title character Akame, a girl bought, brainwashed, and raised by the Empire as an assassin.

Yen Press is releasing the prequel manga in North America, and it published the eighth volume in print on November 13.

Takahiro and Tetsuya Tashiro launched the original Akame ga KILL! manga in Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker magazine in 2010 and ended it in December 2016. Yen Press has released the 15-volume manga in North America.

The manga inspired a TV anime, which premiered in Japan in July 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video. The anime aired on Adult Swim's Toonami block starting in August 2015.
