Jank Runk Family Manga's '2nd Part' Reaches Climax This Month
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 17th issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine revealed on Saturday that the "second part" of Hiroshi Takahashi's Jank Runk Family manga will reach its "climax" in the magazine's 18th issue on August 27. Takahashi had ended the manga's first part in March 2018.
The manga is a crossover with the OREN'S manga, which artist Yanse Kazu and Takahashi launched in September 2015 in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Young Champion magazine. The OREN'S manga is set in the aftermath of a great disaster, and depicts the struggle for survival of men.
Takahashi launched the Jank Runk Family manga in Young Champion in September 2016. The manga's sixth volume shipped on June 7.
Takahashi's Crows manga ran for 26 volumes, and Digital Manga Publishing partially published its sequel manga Worst in English. Crows also inspired a two-episode anime OVA adaptation in 1994, titled Kōkō Butō Den Crows. The manga inspired three live-action films, with Takashi Miike directing the first two films, Crows Zero and Crows Zero II. Crows Explode, the third film, opened in Japan in April 2014.
Tokyo Shock released the first film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in North America, and video label MVM released both Crows Zero and Crows Zero II in the United Kingdom.
