Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song's Ran Kuze launches manga in April

The April issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine revealed on Saturday that Ran Kuze (Tenshin - World War Angel, Tokyo Ravens: Sword of Song) will launch a manga adaptation of Level 5's Ni no Kuni franchise in the magazine's May issue on April 9. Level 5 is credited with the original work and supervision.

The "great adventure" manga will feature an original story in Ni no Kuni. The first chapter will include a color page.

Level 5 debuted the fantasy role-playing game Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PlayStation 3 in Japan in 2011, after a Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madōshi game for Nintendo DS in 2010 and a game for Japanese phones. Namco Bandai Games then released Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch outside Japan in 2013. The RPG featured cut scenes from Studio Ghibli.

Level 5 released the Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom PlayStation 4 and PC game in March 2018.

The franchise is inspiring an anime film with a new story that will open in Japan this summer.
