Kiyo Qjo's series is set in world where drug causes demons to become violent

Kiyo Qjo's Zone-00 manga is inspiring a stage musical adaptation titled Twilight Musical Zone-00 Mangetsu (Full Moon). The musical will run at the CBGK Shibugeki!! theater in Tokyo from July 14 to 21.

People who purchase the manga's 16th compiled book volume, which will ship on Saturday, will be able to register for advance tickets from February 23 to March 10.

Tokyopop released the manga's first four volumes in print, and Viz Media released the first four volumes digitally. Viz Media describes the story of the first volume:

In a world where humans and demons coexist under a fragile peace, change is coming...A mysterious drug, known only as "Zone-00," seems to be causing demons all over Tokyo to lose control and revert to their old, violent ways. Enter two young students who stand on opposite sides of an ageless conflict. One a demon, the other an exorcist, they must now join forces to uncover the secret of "Zone-00" before it's too late!

Qjo launched the manga in Biblos' Magazine Zero in 2000, and it later moved to Kadokawa Shoten's Beans Ace magazine. The manga moved to Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Asuka magazine after Beans Ace ceased publication in 2009. The series then moved to Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website in 2016, where it is currently serializing.

Qjo also illustrated the Trinity Blood manga adaptation of Sunao Yoshida's Trinity Blood light novel series. Tokyopop released the first 12 volumes of the manga in print, and Viz Media released them digitally.
