posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Elex Media announced on Sunday that it has licensed Rei Tōma's Ō no Kemono (The King's Beast) manga, and it will begin releasing it next year.
The manga centers on a hidden love between those of different social classes. The Ajin — those who are half beast and half human — are stronger than humans but are also despised by them. In order to change that fate, Kogetsu serves the king, under the guise of a man.
Tōma launched the manga in Shogakukan's Cheese! magazine in January 2019. The manga is set in the world of Tōma's earlier Dawn of the Arcana manga. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on September 25.
Tōma's Dawn of the Arcana manga launched in Cheese! in 2009, and ended its run in 2013. Shogakukan published 13 compiled book volumes for the manga. Elex Media published the manga in Indonesia.
Tōma launched The Water Dragon's Bride (Suijin no Hanayome) manga in Cheese! in February 2015, and ended it in September 2018. Shogakukan published the manga's 11th and final compiled book volume in January 2019. Elex Media published the manga in Indonesia.
