The DMM TV Matsuri livestream event announced on Wednesday that Atsushi Kaneko's EVOL manga will get a live-action adaptation in 2023.

The EVOL live-action drama's main cast includes:

The dark hero manga centers on three young kids who attempt to take their own lives out of despair and hopelessness for the world, but fail in the attempt. In the hospital, they awaken to a power inside them that could allow them to be heroes. But the directionless trio, who feel there is no place for them in the world, begin an ultimate betrayal of humanity.

Kaneko launched the manga Kadokawa's Comic Beam magazine in August 2020. Kadokawa published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on Monday.

Kaneko launched the Deathco manga in February 2014 and ended it in January 2018. Kaneko launched the Search and Destroy manga, based on Osamu Tezuka's Dororo manga, in Micro Magazine Publishing Company's TezuComi magazine in October 2018, and ended it after 18 chapters. Micro Magazine Publishing Company released the manga's third and final volume in March 2020.

Digital Manga Publishing released two of six volumes of Kaneko's earlier manga Bambi and her Pink Gun in English in 2005. Kaneko's SOIL inspired a live-action television series in 2010. SOIL and Kaneko's Wet Moon have been nominated for Best Crime Comic at France's Angoulême International Comics Festival.
