Series starring Yūsuke Kobayashi, Reina Ueda premieres in January

FLIPFLOPs member Shū Miyama (formerly known under the pen name Ginko) is writing every episode of the television anime adaptation of the creator duo's Darwin's Game manga. Miyama provides the story for the original manga, while Yuki Takahata provides the art.

The anime will premiere in January. Yūsuke Kobayashi voices Kaname in the anime, 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.
