posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's sixth volume of Kodansha's Young Magazine the 3rd published the first chapter of a new manga adaptation of Kafka Asagiri's Guilty Children (Gildore) novel series on Tuesday. Anri Sakano is drawing the manga, and it has a color opening page.
The novels' story begins with the arrival of the "Enemies," giant, indestructible monsters that cannot be negotiated with. The Enemies drive humanity to the brink of extinction. A lone boy stopped them with his "moonfall strategy," but he disappeared soon after. After three years, a boy known as Kyle Kamishiro appears on the outskirts of a city. When monsters attack again, he demonstrates the power to manipulate the odds of probability. Despite his efforts, he is afterward drafted into the "Guilty Children," a unit of children who are guilty of crimes.
Asagiri began serializing the novel story in Young Magazine the 3rd in September 2014, with illustrations by Ame Karasuba, and mechanical designs by Ryūichi Sadamatsu. Kodansha published the series' second volume in February 2017. Kodansha re-released the novels in bunko format with art by Task Karasuma in February 22 and March 21.
Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's Bungō Stray Dogs manga launched in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine in 2013, and Kadokawa published the 17th volume on May 1. Yen Press is publishing the manga in English. The manga has inspired two television anime seasons and an anime film already, and a third ongoing television anime season premiered on April 12.
