K: Seven Stories Anime's 6th Film Gets Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Kodansha's Shonen Magazine Edge magazine revealed on Monday that Yasuyuki Torikai will publish a new manga spinoff of GoRA and GoHands' K franchise titled Epigraph in the magazine's October issue on September 17. The manga will be based on Yashichiro Takahashi's original story for K: Seven Stories "Circle Vision ~Nameless Song~", the sixth film in the K: Seven Stories film series. The announcement did not specify if the manga will be a one-shot or a serialization.
Torikai previously drew Aiseki, another manga adaptation of one of the stories from K: Seven Stories.
Viz Media licensed the six-part film project. Viz's license for the K franchise also includes digital streaming, EST, home video, and merchandising rights for both anime television series and the K: Missing Kings film. Viz Media screened both K: Seven Stories "Memory of Red ~BURN~" and K: Seven Stories "Circle Vision ~Nameless Song~" at Anime NYC last November. The six-film project debuted between July and December in Japan last year.
K: Memory of Red is a title of a manga in the franchise, and K SIDE:BLUE, K:SIDE:GREEN, and K: R:B are titles of novels in the franchise. K―Lost Small World― is both a novel and a manga. Idol K is a parody book that reimagines if the characters in the franchise were all idols. The sixth film tells a new story.
