Babylon Manga Ends With 2 Volumes
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kodansha is listing Nobuhide Takishita manga adaptation of Mado Nozaki's Babylon novels with two volumes that will both ship on October 9 (the kanji labeling the volumes are used in a context to describe a two-part series).
The suspense story centers around Zen Seizaki, a prosecutor with the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors' Office. While investigating illegal acts by a certain pharmaceutical company, Seizaki stumbles across a conspiracy over an election for an autonomous "new zone" established in western Tokyo.
Takishita launched the manga in Kodansha's Comic Days website on February 25.
Kodansha's novel label Kodansha Taiga released the novels' first volume in 2015, followed by the second in 2016. The third and final volume shipped in November 2017. The novels are inspiring a television anime adaptation by Revoroot that will premiere in October.
