eigoManga Publishes Beast Code Manga

posted on by Alex Mateo
Takahiro Yonemura, Megumi Akita's manga launches in November 2022

EigoMANGA announced on Tuesday that it will publish Takahiro Yonemura's Beast Code manga, based on Yonemura's light novel series of the same name. Yonemura is the series' writer, Megumi Akita is the manga's illustrator, and Atsuo Kusada is translating the work. EigoMANGA plans to release the manga in November 2022.

The company describes the story:

"Beast Code" tells the story of Raiki, a high school student, who transforms into a dragon because he was born with the 'Beast Code DNA' that laid dormant within him and generations of other people for centuries. Raiki now struggles with his new abilities and clashes with others who also possess the Beast Code DNA but plan to use their powers for wrongdoing.

Conversely, Raiki's girlfriend Tomoko possesses DNA that instinctively compels her to battle against anyone who has the Beast Code DNA. What is the fate of this couple who are now forced to fight to the death because of their genetic code? Beast Code is an ambitious sci-fi fantasy that asks what dictates the destiny of people: love or biogenetics?

Yonemura debuted the series in 2007. The manga launched in Japan in 2017.

Yonemura also wrote The Metallic Dragon and I light novel series.
