posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine revealed the two main cast members, January premiere, and new key visual for the television anime adaptation of FLIPFLOPs' Darwin's Game manga on Saturday. Yūsuke Kobayashi voices Kaname, while Reina Ueda voices Shuka.
The manga centers on Kaname Sudō, a high school boy who is drawn to a mysterious game app titled "Darwin's Game." He becomes involved in a social game where the stakes are life or death.
FLIPFLOPs launched the manga in Bessatsu Shōnen Champion in December 2012, and Akita Shoten published the manga's 18th compiled book volume on July 8. The series has more than 2 million copies in print.
FLIPFLOPs launched the Nekogami Yaoyorozu comedy manga in Akita Shoten's Champion RED Ichigo magazine in 2007 and ended it in 2012. Akita Shoten published six volumes for the series. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime in 2011, which Crunchyroll streamed with the title Cat God. NIS America released the anime on home video in 2013 under the title The Everyday Tales of a Cat God.
