posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The April issue of Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine confirmed on Tuesday that Tasuku Karasuma's No Guns Life manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation.
The magazine also confirmed more of the show's staff. Naoyuki Itou (Overlord all three seasons, Kanon, Kimi no Koe o Todoketai) is directing the anime at Madhouse (Boogiepop and Others, Overlord). Yukie Sugawara (Overlord all three seasons, Kino's Journey - the Beautiful World-, Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) is overseeing the series scripts and Masanori Shino (Black Lagoon, Digimon Adventure tri. films, Gungrave) is designing the characters.
Viz Media licensed the manga and will begin releasing it this fall. The company describes the story:
With no memory of his previous life—or who replaced his head with a giant gun—Juzo Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver.
Karasuma launched the manga in August 2014 after first publishing the story as a one-shot manga. Shueisha released the eighth compiled book volume on Tuesday.
Karusuma has also drawn manga adaptations of Reideen and Eiichi Ikegami's Shangri-La novel.
