posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The August issue of Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine revealed on Wednesday that Tsuguo Okazaki is launching a new manga based on Shotaro Ishinomori's classic science-fiction hero manga Cyborg 009. The manga is titled Cyborg 009 Bgooparts Delete, and it will launch in the magazine's next issue on July 19.
Shotaro Ishinomori's classic Cyborg 009 manga inspired television anime series in 1968, 1979, and 2001 and films in 1966, 1967, and 1980. More recently, the manga inspired the 009 Re:Cyborg movie in 2012 and the Cyborg 009 Call of Justice movie in 2016. The manga also inspired a crossover original video anime (OVA) with Devilman in 2015.
The story follows a global organization known as Black Ghost, which seeks to lock the world into eternal war. Black Ghost captures nine men and women and turns them into cyborg soldiers, but the cyborgs rebel and fight against Black Ghost.
